A Notary Jurat is Common
In executing a notary jurat, we will be certifying that we have:
- met with the document signer, in person
- positively ID’d the document signer
- verified the signer is signing of their own volition
- administered an oath to the signer
- verified the document is complete; there are no blank fields
- recorded the document execution in our journal
The State of California requires specific wording for us to be able to notarize your document. Most of the time, when you are required to get a document notarized, the person who created the document will have included the notary wording needed for your specific situation, which makes executing the document a piece of cake!
Even if your document was created in another state and does NOT have the required California wording, it’s not a problem. We have the correct certificates to use, which we will attach to your document.
You will be taking an oath as part of this type of notary act. In this oath, you are swearing that everything in the document is true and correct to the best of your knowledge. This oath is subject to penalties of perjury, if it the statements made are subsequently found to be untruthful.

Notary Jurat Questions
This document needs to be sent to another state to be filed with the court, can I get this notarized here and then send it out?
Oftentimes, documents need to be filed in other jurisdictions. We can quickly notarize your document, and then send it out for you using one of our overnight services, if you are under a time crunch.
What if I only have the signature page, the rest of the document is somewhere else?
The entire document must be present for us to notarize it. This is because we need to verify that there are no blank fields in the document that would render it incomplete.
What if there are several of us that need to sign the document, do we all have to be notarized at the same time?
No, each person can be notarized separately, at different times, days and locations, if necessary.
