Below are some of the typical reasons you will need me as your notary public. In all cases a government-issued photo ID is required for each signer.
What is a mobile Florida Notary Public? I am a public officer appointed and commissioned by the Governor to: • Administer oaths; • Take acknowledgments of legal documents, including real property deeds; • Officate at weddings; • Certify or attest to the validity of copies of documents; and • Perform other certification duties outlined by Florida law.
The notary is the person who makes sure signatures are witnessed as necessary. The notary is empowered to put the executor under oath in order to verify a legal instrument’s claims and statements. Thus, a notary’s seal assures the public that the person who signed the document was properly identified, and that the document carries the force of the law.

Oath & Affirmation
An oath or affirmation is administered when the signer is required to make a sworn statement about certain facts. The signer personally appears before the notary to swear (or affirm) that the information contained in the document is true. A person who makes a false oath or affirmation is subject to criminal charges for perjury. Sworn statements are commonly used in affidavits, depositions, and applications.
Florida is one of only three states which authorize notaries public to perform marriage ceremonies. The couple must obtain a valid Florida marriage license from a county court judge or clerk of the circuit court and present it to the notary public before the marriage ceremony.
To take an acknowledgment, the document signer must personally appear before the notary public, and declare that he or she has signed the document voluntarily. Documents typically requiring an acknowledgment include deeds,mortgages, contracts, last will & testament and powers of attorney.
Verify a VIN
Florida law requires that, when applying for a Florida title for the first time on a used motor vehicle, the owner must sign a sworn statement that the vehicle identification number (VIN) and the odometer reading on the vehicle are correct. Notaries public are authorized to certify this information.
Certify Contents of Safe Deposit Box
Florida law provides that a financial institution may open a safe-deposit box if the rental fee is past due, providing that certain conditions are met.
