3 Ways Notaries Can Properly Identify Signers

In most states, signers may also be identified through the use of a credible witness, or two, providing that your state laws allow this, and that the witnesses meet all statutory requirements. In Pennsylvania, for example, a credible witness must personally know both the signer and the Notary. Florida, on the other hand, allows the use of two credible witnesses who do not personally know the Notary. In this case, the witnesses must present valid, state approved ID to the Notary, and sign a sworn written statement.
