Getting a Notarized Statement

Filed under: Legal Issues — Tags: — admin @ 3:20 am

If you need a statement notarized, this is an easy task to accomplish. First of all, the actual notarization being done is on the signature, not the notarized form — so, you technically are getting a notarized signature!

It is not up to the notary public to help you draft a document or Jurat page. Ideally, you should have a document all printed up before even calling the notary public. You can also handwrite a statement on a Jurat form and then sign and swear to it in the presence of a notary public to get a notarized statement or notarized signature. If you create your document on your own, or with the help of an Attorney, the notary public can staple a loose Acknowledgment or Jurat Certificate to the document, fill out the certificate, and stamp it.

You can find thousands of mobile notaries on 123notary.com. Just visit the advanced search or find a notary page. Yes, they will charge a hefty travel fee for the convenience of coming to you. You could also use Google to find a notary office in your area such as a UPS Store, etc.

What does the notary actually do? The notary public needs to witness your signature if doing a Jurat notarization. The notary will most likely require you to sign a notary journal as well. The notary public will fill out the entire journal entry which might take two minutes. Next, the notary will fill out the notary certificate wording, sign, and stamp the notary certificate form. Then you are done!
