Scroll below for complete instructions on how to use the Notarize service.
In order to have the best experience possible, please come prepared to your online notary meeting. You will need:
Ensure that your signature is on the form, whether through DocuSign (electronic) or a physical signature. If you need to sign the form manually, you will need to scan and save the document in the PDF file format. Be sure to include all pages – not just the page that requires notarization.
Notarize uses patent-pending forensic analysis to verify government-issued photo IDs and passports. When prompted, you'll capture images of your photo ID using the video capabilities on your computer or phone and then answer a few questions. Notarize will confirm your identity in seconds.
Connect with a licensed electronic notary public over live video to sign your form. The Notarize agent will confirm your identity, witness your signature, and assist you throughout the process.
