Frequently Asked Questions

What types of documents do you notarize?

We notarize just about every document which needs to be notarized in the paper world. There are a few exceptions though, so see below:​

In an online notarization, both you and the notary electronically sign the notarized document. Per federal and state laws such as the ESIGN Act and the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), when both sides agree to perform their transaction electronically, electronic signatures are just as valid as handwritten signatures for virtually all documents. But, certain documents are excluded – see below. Also, some states, public agencies and court systems impose additional requirements and limitations for accepting electronically-signed documents, so it’s always important to check with your intended recipient to confirm their specific requirements for accepting electronically signed and notarized documents.​

We currently do not notarize:

  • Birth, Marriage, or Death Certificates

  • Divorce decrees

  • Court-issued documents

What if my document requires a physical (wet) signature?

In some cases, your recipient may require original signatures from all signers. In order to fulfill this requirement, you will need to either:

1. Meet at our in-office location to sign in-person

2. Meet with a notary over video chat to show ID and sign your documents.​

After the session, you will mail the original documents to the address provided by your notary. Once received, the document will be notarized and sent to your recipient.

What are acceptable forms of ID that I can use?

Acceptable forms of ID include the following photo IDs if valid and unexpired. Your state may have other allowable IDs or may exclude use of some items on this list, so always check:​

  • U.S. State Issued Driver’s License

  • U.S. State Issued Photo ID

  • U.S. Passport Book

  • U.S. Passport Card

  • Certificate of US Citizenship

  • Certificate of Naturalization

  • Foreign Passport

  • Alien Registration Card with Photo

  • Military ID 

    This is not a comprehensive list.

What if my document requires a witness?

Many transactions require more than just a notary and signer. If you’re signing a document that requires a witness, you’ll want to make sure you let us know before your appointment. Just complete the request form indicating how many witnesses are needed. Please note there is an additional fee per witness.

What if I have additional signers?

If your document must be signed by more than one person, you have three options:

  1. You and your secondary co-signer can both visit us together in-office.

  1. You and your secondary signer can be co-located (in the same physical location), log into the session with the notary together, on the same device, and your documents notarized.​

  1. If your document requires two or more signers and they’re not co-located, all signers must complete separate transactions. Each signer would request and appointment and upload an unsigned copy of his/her document. When complete, you will have separately notarized documents that you may then submit to your recipient agency or institution.

How does online notarization work?

You are connected with a commissioned notary public via live audio-video call. The notary public confirms your identity visually using the scanned photo ID, and then witnesses as you sign the document. Just like a traditional notarization, the notary then signs and places their notarial seal on your document.

What documents can be Apostilled?

  • Vital Records (birth, death, marriage, divorce, single status)

  • Marriage records issued by a Virginia Circuit Court (You must ask for a triple seal to be attached to your marriage record. It will be returned if there is no triple seal.)

  • Circuit court documents (divorce decree, name change, single status)

  • State Corporation Commission issued documents

  • Other documents that are approved for foreign use. 

Do all documents need to be notarized before they are Apostilled?

​No, in fact some documents cannot be notarized. See list below of document that typically require a notarization and those that cannot be notarized prior to an apostille.

​Documents that typically MUST be notarized: 

  • Powers of Attorney (POA)

  • School transcripts/ Diplomas

  • Translations

  • Background checks

  • Other document not listed as prohibited below.​

    Documents that CANNOT be notarized:

  • Vital Records (birth, death, marriage, divorce, single status)

  • Marriage records issued by a Circuit Court (You must ask for a triple seal to be attached to your marriage record. It will be returned if there is no triple seal.)

  • Issued circuit court documents (divorce decree, name change, single status)

  • State Corporation Commission issued documents

Can the document be written in a foreign language?

Yes, however, the notarization section must be in English.

Can I take my own passport photo?

Yes, you can take your own passport photo. However, it must meet all the requirements for passport photos, including size, clarity, and background. Professional passport photo services can help ensure that your photo is compliant and meets all the necessary standards.
