A notary public serves a number of important functions. We ensure proper authentication and execution of documents, and to defer fraud by positively identifying the signer of the document. Our seal indicates that we executed the duties of the tasks defined by our commission.

Texas Notaries can notarize a handwritten document. however, the document presented must include the following: 1) identify the signer; 2) include statements; 3) have a signature line for the signer; and 4) contain a notarial certificate.

Documents Written in a Foreign Language

We need to be able to determine the signer's name, the notarial act required, the date of the document and whether the document is complete. Such as no missing pages or blank spaces that look like they should be filled-in.

Notarial Certificates in a Foreign Language

The foreign-language certificate must be replaced with one written in English. We are required to make this alteration.

ID Cards
