What Do You Need For Notarization In Ottumwa, Iowa?

Notary services in Iowa are available to help you with signing contracts, power of attorney, wills, affidavits, deeds, and other common legal documents. The fraud deterrence provided by a Notary helps all parties entering into a legal agreement stay protected and avoid bad outcomes.

Always check with your selected Notary service prior to your visit to ensure any specific requirements for your state are met. In general, the following things are needed:

  • A Valid government issued ID, like a passport, drivers license, military ID, green card, etc.
  • Assurance that you're signing of your own free will (no coercion).
  • You must be of sound mind, meaning not intoxicated, medicated, or incapable of understanding what's going on.
  • Some documents may require a witness who isn't an interested party (not mentioned in the document).
  • Bring every page of the document (not just the signature pages), and don't sign it ahead of time!

Notarization F.A.Q

Q: Can A Notary Public Notarize Foreign Language Documents?

As with all things, check with your Notary ahead of time to make sure they're comfortable with it, but in general it is possible. It's important that the person signing be able to communicate with the Notary, but there's no specific requirement that the Notorizing agent be able to read the document itself.

Q: Can You Notarize Over The Phone?

While some states are expanding their remote online notarization programs, these basically always require real time video communication rather than a traditional telephone. Check with your Notary to be sure, but expect that the answer will be no.

Q: Who Can Be A Witness?

Some documents require a third party witness to the signing, but not all. Rules again vary by state, so check with your Notary on whether a witness is needed and any specific requirements. Generally speaking it will need to be someone with no interest in (not mentioned in or otherwise impacted by) the agreement outlined in the document. Friends and neighbors are a good bet.

Q: How Much Does Notarization Cost?

Notaries can charge a nominal fee for each signature, the maximum of which depends on the state. Typical price range is anywhere from $2-$20. Check with them ahead of time for exact costs.
