WHAT IS A NOTARY PUBLIC?

 

A notary public is a public official whose powers and duties are defined by statute. A notary acts as an official, unbiased witness to the identity and signature of the person who comes before the notary for a specific purpose. The person may be taking an oath, giving oral or written testimony, or signing or acknowledging his or her signature on a legal document. In each case, the notary attests that certain formalities have been observed.

Cost:

$5 - per signature

$5 - every other signature thereafter

  • In necessary cases, a child’s signature may be notarized. The required proof of the identity of a child is the same as an adult.

A notary has the power to perform various official acts, known as “notarial acts”. The Code of Virginia specifies five basic notarial acts:

  1. Taking acknowledgments

  2. Administering oaths and affirmations

  3. Certifying affidavits or depositions

  4. Certifying “true copies” of documents

  5. Verification of fact

 

Each of these acts has a specific purpose and should be performed with care. The Uniform Recognition of Acknowledgments Act (Section 55-118.1 through 55-121 of the Code of Virginia) outlines the format a notary should use for various acknowledgments.

 

Please be advised: 

If there no notarial wording on your document, you must choose which form to use. Notaries cannot advise you on your choice of form. If you are not aware of the type of notarial certificate your document requires, please contact the author of the document, or the document recipient, and have them advice you regarding what type of form you should use
