Have Your Contracts Notarized Without Visiting a Georgia Notary
While the process can be tedious, notarization is important if you want your documents to carry legal weight. The good news is—going to a Georgia notary’s office isn’t the only way to have your wills, real estate deeds, and other contracts notarized.
Learn how to notarize documents without having to go to the notary public’s office. DoNotPay has developed a feature that will help you create any legal document and have it notarized in a matter of minutes.
What Are the Duties of a Notary Public in Georgia?
A notary public in Georgia is authorized to:
- Witness the signing of the contracts
- Administer oaths and affirmations
- Take acknowledgments
- Witness affidavits
- Make certified copies of original documents that aren’t publicly recorded
- Perform other notarial acts according to state laws
All notaries are required to verify the identity of the signing parties before performing a notarial act. The notary’s main purpose is to deter fraud.
How To Find a Notary in Georgia
Besides looking for the nearest notary’s office on Google, you can also find a notary in one of the following places:
- Financial institutions, such as credit unions and larger banks (e.g., Wells Fargo and Bank of America)
- AAA stores
- UPS and other shipping service providers
- Law offices
- Public libraries
Is the Traditional Notarization Method the Most Practical One?
Should you choose to get your documents notarized the traditional way, you will have to follow these steps:
- Look for an available notary
- Schedule a meeting
- Prepare your documents and bring them to the notary’s office
- Provide your ID so that the notary can verify your identity
- Pay the notary fees
- Affirm that you are:
- Familiar with the contents of the contract
- Signing the contract voluntarily
- Sign the document before the notary
- Wait until the notary composes a statement and seals the document with a notary signature and stamp
The entire process is bothersome and time-consuming, which is why more and more people turn to alternative methods, such as:
- Hiring a traveling notary to come to your home, office, or any other place of your choosing. Bear in mind that mobile notaries in most states charge additional fees for travel expenses
- Registering for one of the online notary services to get your contracts notarized remotely. Most platforms charge a pretty penny for each notarized document, which isn’t ideal if you need to do it often
How Much Can a Georgia Notary Charge for Notarization?
The state law allows notaries in Georgia to charge up to $2.00 per notarial act. Traveling notarizes in Georgia have the right to charge an additional fee for their travel expenses. The notary is obligated to tell you the exact price of the service before notarizing your documents.
