What Do You Need to Bring to a Notary?

Notarized signatures are required for certain types of documents. This commonly includes legal documents, wills, power of attorney papers, medical documents, mortgages and deeds, various affidavits, vehicle titles (in some states), contracts, and more.

So the first thing you’ll need to bring with you to a notary is the document itself. Keep in mind that in order to be legal, you must sign the document in the presence of the notary, who is required to witness your signature. If you need to have a document notarized, don’t sign it before you visit a notary.

In addition to your document, you’ll need:

  • A valid form of identification: Acceptable forms of ID for notary public services include your driver’s license or non-driver ID, U.S. passport, military ID, or resident alien identification card (green card).
  • Notary fee: In some cases, you can get a document notarized for free — many banks and credit unions provide this service. Other times you may be charged a small fee, which varies by state. You can learn more about notary fees in our article, How Much Is It to Get Something Notarized?

Here are the hotels that provide guest notary services on Sundays:

4. Hilton Hotels

5. Marriott Hotels

6. Omni Hotels and Resorts

7. Walt Disney World Resort Hotels

Mobile Notaries

For areas where there are no other places with notary services open on Sunday, you can find a mobile notary in your area. Mobile notaries will come to your home or business to notarize a document, and most of them provide after-hours, weekend, and last-minute services.

However, it’s important to note that mobile notary fees are often higher than the state maximum. In addition to the standard state notary fee, mobile notaries typically also charge fees to compensate them for their time and/or travel. In some states, they use a per-mile fee plus the standard state fee; in others, mobile notaries can set their own fees. This notary fee chart from the National Notary Association shows a breakdown of various mobile notary fees, by state.
