What a notary public does is witness the person signing the document is who she or he says is. Because identities are critical, a notary public may also spend more time verifying the names of the parties involved in the signing.
when you are provided a personal notary service you must:
- Provide proper identification (drivers license)
- Sign all documents in the presence of the notary
- Be able to understand the terms of the documents being signed and notarized
- Pay all associated fees
