Full Answer

Notarization of a document legally verifies that the signing of the document was witnessed by a licensed professional. Notarization of documents helps to minimize the chances of potential fraud and identity theft and is a requirement for a wide range of legal documents. Common documents that are subject to notarization include loan documents, wills, deeds, medical documents, living wills, I-9 forms, vehicle titles, power of attorney documents and vehicle titles.

The cost of notarization depends on the specific documents as well as the amount of signatures that need to be notarized. Additionally, notary fees vary by state. In general, the cost per signature is between $5.00 and $10.00, and notary service fees range between $10.00 and $20.00. The time it takes to notarize a document is typically under an hour, but this also depends on the amount of document pages and signatures needed.
