There are many reasons you might need a notary to authorize and sign a document, from legal paperwork like contracts, affidavits, wills, and trusts, to real estate documentation like mortgages and property deeds, to prenuptial agreements, promissory notes, vehicle titles, and many more.

Luckily, there are plenty of places to find a notary, even if you need to get a document notarized after-hours, find a notary on Saturday, or have it done at the last minute. There are also lots of free and low-cost options to get your documents notarized. In this article, we give you the comprehensive list of places where you can find a notary to have your documents legally signed.

What You’ll Need to Bring to a Notary

Of course, the number one thing you’ll need to have when you visit a notary public is the document you need notarized. Most importantly, know that your document must be signed in the presence of a notary in order to be legal, so don’t sign it before you arrive. If you do, you’ll have to obtain another unsigned copy of the document before the notary can approve it.

Other things you’ll need include:

  • Valid ID: The notary must verify your identity before a document can be legally signed, so you’ll be required to show a valid government-issued photo identification. Forms of ID that are accepted by notaries include driver’s licenses or state-issued non-driver IDs, military IDs, valid U.S. passports, and resident alien identification cards.
  • Notary fees: While some notaries provide services free of charge, others may require a small fee to notarize a document. The fees that notaries are permitted to charge vary by state, and may also vary by notary service provider. See our article on How Much Is It to Get Something Notarized for a list of state notary fees.
