Can I Provide A Signer With A Legal Form?

March 3, 2017

Someone has asked me to notarize a power of attorney and wants me to provide the form. The person has cancer and wants to give power of attorney to her sister. Can I do this? — K.F. California

No, you shouldn’t provide the form unless you are an attorney. A Notary who is not an attorney may not practice law in California (Business and Professions Code 6125). Selecting the type of document to meet an individual’s legal need could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.
