As important documents require notarization for legal purposes, it is crucial that you prepare well in advance for your appointment. Not only does it ensure that the process is smooth and hassle-free, but it also ensures that your documents are valid and legally binding. Here are a few tips that will help you prepare for your notarization appointment.

Verify the Notary’s Availability

Before scheduling a notarization appointment, it is essential to verify the notary’s availability at the time of your appointment. Notaries are usually booked a few days in advance, and you wouldn’t want to show up only to find out that the notary is unavailable. Here at Sunrise Notary, we make it easy to schedule an appointment. On our website contact page, you will find our phone number and email address or you can send us a message.

Gather Your Documents

Ensure that you have all the necessary documents that require notarization. It is important to keep separate copies of the documents for your records. Before going to the notary’s office, it is advisable to double-check if you have all the necessary documents.

Check to Ensure the Documents are Complete and Correct

It is crucial to ensure that your documents are complete and correct before presenting them to the notary. The notary will not be able to verify your documents if they are incomplete, and you may have to reschedule your appointment. Make sure that there are no blank spaces, the names and dates are accurate, and the signatures are in the right place.

Bring Identification

To have your documents notarized, you will need to provide identification to the notary. The notary will verify your identity, and it can be done using a driver’s license, passport, or any other government-issued identification. It is advisable to bring more than one form of identification, just in case one form of identification is not accepted.

Bring Payment

Notary fees are regulated by NV Revised Statute. At Sunrise Notary we provide a list of services and applicable pricing on our website. By reviewing that prior to your appointment you’ll know in advance what you will be paying. Pricing can vary if witnesses are required, how many signatures, etc.

Confirm the Notary’s Acceptance

Ensure that the notary accepts your particular document for notarization before going for the appointment. Some notaries may not be authorized to notarize certain documents or may require additional licensing or training. It’s always advisable to confirm in advance.

Understand the Notary’s Role

It is essential to understand the role of the notary to ensure that you are following the legal requirements correctly. Notaries act as impartial witnesses to the signing of important legal documents. They verify the signer’s identity, ensure that the signer is not being coerced, and ensure that the document is being signed willingly.

Follow Instructions

It is important to follow the instructions of the notary. They will guide you through the process and ensure that the notarization process is legal and binding. Notaries have different procedures, and it is therefore important to listen to them and follow their instructions.

In Conclusion

Following the above tips will help you prepare and ensure that your notarization appointment is smooth and hassle-free. By preparing well in advance, you will take a step towards ensuring that your documents are legally binding and can be used in court. If you have any questions or concerns about the process, it is essential to contact the notary before the appointment.
