There are several forms of notarized documents, the most common of which are affidavits (which are written statements of a person made and signed under oath) and acknowledgements (which is a notarized statement that a document was signed before a notary, usually used for documents related to real property). There would be no legitimate reason I can think of ...

Unless the notary personally knows the signer, the notary should, and normally will, ask for identification, and the name that the notary puts in the notarization certificate should be copied exact6ly from whatever ID is presented. For Alan Jones to sign as J7, he would need some sort of official proof, acceptable to the notary, that he is "J7". What would ...

There are multiple things that could be called "electronic notaries", and they are not all legally equal. The specific service you are referring to is remote notarization, and in the US it is legal in Montana and Virginia. They are not legal in Washington, because RCW 42.45.040 specifically requires that "the individual making the statement or executing the ...

Since all 4 notarization certificates are identical, this is probably to allow for the notary or notaries to take acknowledgements for 4 different people. Looking at a few NY POA forms on the web, it appears normal in NY for the principal, the agent, any secondary agents, and any successor agents, to all sign and have their acknowledgements taken by a notary....

I've noticed that in preparation for closing on a house, a title search is done. What is the name of the document that is produced when the title search is complete? There are several kinds of products of a title search that could be produced. The smallest and cheapest, but not usually sufficient for a closing on real estate, is an O&E for "...

Yes Courts can enter a judgement agreed by the parties, however, they will not do so for unlawful agreements or that otherwise conflict with public policy.

The top of an affidavit and the closing of an affidavit are the same if it is one page long, or many pages long (a simple form I use where I practice is below, although some places expect something slightly more elaborate). In a multi-page affidavit it would be customary to have page numbers and to number each paragraph sequentially, but there is really ...

You could go to your local U.S. embassy, or you could go to your neighborhood Dutch notary. Usually a notarization by a foreign notary will be valid on a U.S. document.

There may be a requirement saying "No notary public shall subscribe his signature or affix his seal, where a seal is necessary, to a document until it has been fully completed with respect to the particulars required for the purposes of the document" (Saskatchewan). If the document is written in Arabic and the notary does not know Arabic, he can't ...

Various states have different laws about foreign language documents. Without knowing what state you are in, there is no way to answer. Another consideration is whether just the letter is in the foreign language, or the notarial certificate too. There are states that would allow the document to be in a foreign language but not the notarial certificate. Since ...

There is no reason that both parties must be present in front of a notary at the same time. It is common place to have multiple signature pages executed at different times by different people in different places. The guy in India signs his page of the contract in the presence of a notary in India, and the guy in South Korea signs his page of the contract in ...
