Notarizing a Document (Step 5) | Notarial Certificate

Fill in the notarial certificate

When completing the certificate, Notary ensures that all information in it is correct. For example, the venue — marked by the words “State of … County of …” — notes where the notarization is being performed and not where the document was prepared or will be filed.

Finally, Notary will sign and affix their seal on the certificate properly. The certificate must be signed exactly the Notary's name name appears on their commission. Their seal should be close to the signature but should not overlap any wording. This way everything will be legible.

By always following these essential steps, a Notary will be able to perform their duties properly and without error.
