A Notary Public is an official of integrity appointed by the secretary of state — to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents. These official acts are called notarizations, or notarial acts. Notaries are publicly commissioned as “ministerial” officials, meaning that they are expected to follow written rules without the exercise of significant personal discretion, as would otherwise be the case with a “judicial” official
The Notary Public must see one of the following forms of identification before providing a Notary Service in Yuba City or anywhere in California:
In most cases, yes. If none of the types of Identification listed are available, or it would be excessively difficult for the document signer to obtain them, two additional persons who do have acceptable identification may be present who will swear to the signer's identity. The two individuals have to be over the age of 18, have valid identification ready for inspection and recording in the notaries journal and must swear or affirm, under penalty of perjury, that they personally know the signer. They will also need to be present at the time of witnessing and sign the notary journal.
Yes. We can travel to most any location you are comfortable with.
In most cases yes, wherever you are at the time of notarization, will be listed on the notary certificate as the "venue." The venue determines the specific state laws that are to be followed when notarizing a document. Every Notary Public is bound by the laws of the state they are commissioned in.
