Authenticating a signer’s Identification for Notary Services
Notaries will ask clients to provide an acceptable ID before notarizing their document(s). To ensure the ID is satisfactory, they will need to hold it and read it to confirm it is genuine.
Notaries in all states are responsible for ensuring the identity of their signers and can be subject to civil or criminal liability if they fail to do so.
