What Kinds of Documents Can I Have Notarized at The Legal Café?
At The Legal Café, we notarize a wide range of documents, generally falling into three categories:
- Legal documents, such as wills, trusts, deeds, contracts, affidavits, advance directives, powers of attorney, executorships, custody and guardianship agreements, depositions, and other court documents
- Financial and fiduciary documents, including mortgage documents, loan documents, and credit instruments
- Business documents, such as articles of incorporation, articles of agreement, commercial leases, construction and loan agreements, memorandums of understanding, and vendor and employment documents
Do I Need to Bring Witnesses or Will The Legal Café Provide Them?
The Legal Café can provide witnesses upon request. We ask, however, that you notify us in advance if you will need witnesses.
How Much Will It Cost Me to Get a Document Notarized?
At The Legal Café, we charge $6 to notarize the first signature on a specific document and $1 for each additional signature. Notarization of an oath costs $6, and depositions can be notarized at $.50 per 100 words.
The cost for witnesses is $20 per signing for either one or two witnesses.
What Will I Need to Bring to Get a Document Notarized?
Because the notary is required to verify the identity of all persons signing a document, you must be able to document who you are. In Texas, if you are known personally to the notary or a credible witness, you do not need to produce identification documents. However, if you are unknown to the notary and there’s no credible witness to identify you, you must bring some form of written identification, such as a valid state or federal ID that includes a picture, signature, and description, typically of eye and hair color, weight, height, and date of birth.
Bring any documents that need notarizing; however, don’t sign them beforehand. You must sign in the presence of the notary.
Finally, be prepared to pay the notary fees, as referenced above. We accept cashier’s checks and credit cards as payment, beforehand.
