  • Administer oaths and affirmations
  • Take verifications upon oaths and affirmations

  1. Search for a notary public
  2. Schedule a meeting
  3. Collect your documents and bring them to the notary’s office
  4. Provide your ID because the notary has to verify your identity
  5. Pay required notary fees
