In most cases, the document is signed in the notary’s presence; in some cases, it is signed first and then brought to the notary public by the signer, who will then acknowledge to the notary that he or she signed it.

Notary Pledge, Not an Attorney

It is important to understand that a Notary Public is NOT an Attorney and therefor, by law, cannot explain or interpret the contents of any document for you, instruct you on how to complete a document or advise you on signing any document.  A notary who does any of these things could face charges for the unauthorized practice of law and face penalties that include the possibility of incarceration. Notaries take a binding pledge not to engage in this activity and should always advise you they are not able to assist in these areas by law. A Notary Public is considered a public officer appointed by the State. Their primary job is to help prevent fraud by witnessing the signing of documents and verifying the document signers identification and that they have a basic understanding of the transaction are are signing of their free will.  Any important questions, or legal concerns, about your document should be addressed with the person who created the documents or attorney.
