Notary Services

A Notary Public is an individual commissioned by the State of Indiana to serve as an impartial witness and fraud deterrent for legally significant documents such as wills, property deeds, marriage licenses and adoption papers.

Notaries defer fraud by verifying individuals’ identity and ensuring that all parties understand the contents of the documents they sign.

Most requests for notarization involve the signing of documents. In all cases, all signers and any required witness(es) must be present for the notarization. You’ll need to bring acceptable ID as required by your state along with all pages of the document being notarized.

Before you schedule your appointment:

  • We suggest you don’t sign or date the document (some documents must be signed and dated in the presence of a Notary)
  • Make sure you have all the pages of the document(s) being signed, not just the signature page
  • Make sure all document signers have state-acceptable ID
