Does Notarizing a Document Validate It or Make It Legal?

One of the most often-asked questions notaries receive from clients is whether their documents become legal once they’ve been notarized.

No, just because you have gotten a document notarized does not make the document legal or make it truthful. However, the Notary can attest that based on identifiable evidence that you personally or remotely appeared before them when signing your documents.

Notaries take precautionary steps to protect their clients’ private information. Every client has the right to have his/her private information protected. Notaries are committed to upholding the mandates of the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act. Any personal information that is recorded by a Notary is protected and treated with the highest security possible.

Please be sure to consult your attorney for any legal advice regarding your notarized documents.
