Preparing For Your Notary
Please read these instructions carefully before scheduling an appointment.
The Notary Public laws require notaries to take special precautions before notarizing documents:
- The document or form requiring notarization must be completely filled out. We do not draw up documents nor help you with filling out the document*
- All signer(s) must be present at the time of the appointment
- All signer(s) must provide an original federal or state issued photo I.D., non-expired
- The signer(s) must be of sound mind, alert, and mentally competent
- The signer must want to sign the document being notarized
*Amora Notary Services may charge additional fees for extra services and distance as permitted in the State Of Arizona.
