A Notary Public is an official of integrity commissioned by the Secretary of State to serve the public as an impartial witness to the identity, comprehension, and intent of a person requesting a notarial act.
The signer is not in your presence. You cannot identify the signer through accepted forms of identification or if they are not personally known to you. There is reason to believe that the signer does not understand the consequences of the transaction or record being notarized. The signer is not acting of their free will. The record presented for copy certification is a vital record, public record or a publicly recorded document that is available as a certified copy from an official source other than a notary public. You are a party to or are named in the record except for the sole purpose of receiving notices relating to the document. The signer is an immediate family member of the notary public. The record or notarial certificate contains information known by the notary to be false.
