Vital records, such as passports and birth certificates, are acceptable forms of identity verification in most cases. However, some situations and applications require additional documentation or a notarization to verify one’s identity and get consent from a signer.
For instance, a minor traveling internationally without their legal guardian needs a letter of consent that validates their safety. This letter must be notarized, as the child’s passport alone will not be enough to leave the country. Some states require vital records applications to be notarized - and Notarize helps make that happen.
States that require notarization include:
New York City
