What Does the Act of Notarization Accomplish?

  • The act of notarization protects against fraud.
  • A notarized signature proves the signer appeared before the notary public. The signer must be in the physical presence of the notary before the notary may lawfully notarize.
  • The notary certifies that a signature is made willingly and freely.
  • A notarization does not prove a document or statement is true or accurate, nor does a notarization validate or legalize a document.
