Frequently Asked Questions
I Need a notarization. Whom Do I Contact?
For any of your notarization needs, please use the button below to schedule your signing with us or simply give us a call. We will be glad to to assist you to the most of our abilities.
Does the document need to be signed in front of the notary?
Yes. The statutes require that the notary sees the signer actually sign the document when the notarial wording is that of a JURAT. In the case of an acknowledgment, the person is simply acknowledging (declaring, stating) that he or she signed the document. If the notary does not know the signer personally, the signer must present identification along with signing the notary’s journal.
What Are the Payment Methods You Accept?
We prefer cash since most notarizations’ fees are relatively small. However, we also accept major credit/debit cards as well as zelle pay to accomodate for relatively large fees involving travel fee or expedite fee for apostille for example.
Are You a Law Firm? Can you give legal advice?
AS NOTARY PUBLIC, WE ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY IN THE STATE OF NEVADA. WE ARE NOT LICENSED TO GIVE LEGAL ADVICE. WE MAY NOT ACCEPT FEES FOR GIVING LEGAL ADVICE.
Can you notarize a document written in a foreign language?
In most instances, yes. All the notary need is a title to put in his/her/their journal, and can actually use the title the person resquesting notarization gave. However, the notary may not be able to witness a signature because he/she/they must be able to tell if that person is named in the document before doing so. If you the requester ask to certify a copy,we as notaries here at The Nevada Notary prefer make the photocopy ourselves rather than try to compare two copies. Sometime we may need to check with an interpreter as to the type, or title, of the document. If this document is false or endorses or promotes a product, we will not know that. We always add the notarial wording in English whenever the document is written in a language we can not read.

You must provide to the notary on this same signature paper a written explanation as to why you want or need your signature notarized. The statement may be as simple as : “I have been asked to have my signature notarized for verification”.
Could you assist with properly filling out a form?
As a notary, it is not our responsibility to check or assist with properly filling out a form. however though, it is our full responsibility to make sure the notarial wording is present, correct and complete.
Do I need a valid ID for a notarization?
Yes. The law requires us as notary to ask for a valid, non expired identification card with a photograph and signature of the document signer. In other words the ID provided must be a picture ID and the signature on it must match the signature on the document to be notarized. The law also provides guidance to the notary for some exceptional cases. Check with us to see if this apply to you.
Is the credible witness presence necessary?
If a credible witness will be used as evidence, then yes this credible witness presence is absolutely necessary. The credible witness identity may not be verified by phone or letter in this case.
