Can You Notarize My Document?

Generally, if it can be Notarized, I can Notarize it for you.

What can not be Notarized?

  • Copies, Faxes, or Photos
  • Most government documents
  • Documents that are only signed by the Notary and not signed by anyone else
  • Documents signed by a close relative of the Notary
  • Documents where I may have a vested interest
  • Documents where the signer does not appear before me in Tennessee or lacks proper identification or is not signing freely and willingly.

I can Notarize any other type of document if it has a Notary Certificate on it. If it lacks a Notary Certificate, I can add one by writing it on the document or attaching a pre-printed Acknowledgment or Jurat.

I have experience with Notarizing many types of documents, including:

  • Bill of sale for cars, trucks, vans, boats
  • Power of Attorney – Limited, Durable, and Financial
  • Health Care Power of Attorney
  • Health Care Advance Directive
  • Shared Residence Affidavit for schools

  • Living Wills
  • Letters

  • Also Known As Statement or Affidavit
  • Deed of Trust

      Yes, the home owner has to be present. I can come to your home to notarize your document. Please see the location & costs page for an explanation of what it costs to do that. Also, if you read the frequently asked questions page, you will see everything involved.

  5. Emma says:

    Could you please answer me the following question please:
    Do you notarize a notarized document?
    Thank you in advance for your reply.


  6. Emma says:

    Thank you for your reply, and sorry if I didn’t clarify the question. We need one more legal copy of the “Declaration of legal heirs”, and NOT two original seals from two different Notaries Public in the same notarized document. I mean, I will bring you the notarized document, and based on that document: Is it possible for you to provide for us another notarized copy (from you) of the notarized document (signed from the other Notary public)?
    Thank you in advance for your kind answer.

      So, what you want is for me to make a certified (notarized) copy of a document that’s already notarized? If so, I’m sorry, but that’s not a service I can offer right now. You can take any document to the county register’s office and get it recorded and they can issue certified copies.

      If what you need is a second original of the same document and you’re the only one signing, I can notarize that. If others have also signed the earlier document, they would need to also be present. I can only notarize for people who appear before me.
