What Is a Credible Witness?

A Credible Witness is someone who personally knows BOTH the Notary & whoever is signing the document and who is willing to come to the signing to swear to the Notary that the signers are who they say they are.

In effect, a Credible Witness brings their knowledge of everyone involved to the signing and serves as a form of living I.D.

In my experience, it is very rare to use a Credible Witness because the requirement that they personally know both the Notary and the signers of the document limits who can serve in this role.
