Notary Services

Online Notary Scheduling


The notary must witness your signature. Do not sign your documents until you are in front of the notary.

Witness Signatures

Customers requiring witness signatures before a notary public must provide their own witnesses at the time of notarization. In the case of witnesses for a will, the witnesses cannot be named in the will. The individual whose document is being notarized must personally know the witness and valid photo identification must be provided.


Please note that we are not able to perform notary services for the following:

  • real estate transactions involving more than 4 notarized signatures;
  • complex wills or estate documents involving more than 4 notarized signatures;
  • documents with a notary block in a foreign language;
  • I-9 Employment Eligibility Verifications; and
  • blank documents, documents with blank spaces, and documents without notarial wording.

True & Correct Copies

Notary services for true and correct copies will only be performed for City-related business documents (not birth certificates or marriage licenses.)
