A Notary is a public servant with statewide jurisdiction, authorized to take acknowledgments, administer oaths, take depositions,and certify copies of documents not recordable in the public records.
Each Notary Public takes an official oath of office to faithfully perform the duties of the office, and is required to post a $10,000.00 bond with the Secretary of State. A Notary Public is disinterested party that has notified the signer of the importance of the document, and the signer has declared that their identity, signature, and reasons for signing are genuine.
Plainly stated: the primary function of a notary public is to prevent fraud.
A notary requires the signer to be present for the notarization. Remember that the primary function of a notary public is to prevent fraud. We do this by requiring the physical presence of the signer, making a positive identification of the signer, and placing the signer under oath or affirmation, or taking the acknowledgment of the signer that the document was signed willingly.
The Function of a Notary
Acting as a disinterested party to show that the signer of a document was admonished to the importance of the document and that the signer has declared identity and verified the signature. And finnialy, verify the competence of the signer. The presence of the Notary Public’s signature and seal does not prove conclusively any of the factual componets of hte document, but should allow persons in commerce to rely upon the integrity of the
Notary Public as a third party with no personal interest in the transaction.
