What forms of identification do you accept?
California Code 1185[b] lists some very specific documents that a Public Notary can use to identify someone. These forms of ID must be unexpired (or issued within the past 5 years), be shown in physical form (photocopies or electronic versions are not acceptable), and the name listed on the document being signed should match that of the ID being presented. That said, I have a compiled a list of acceptable documents that we can use to Notarize ones signature.
1. A California Driver’s License or Non-Driver’s ID
2. A U.S. Passport (or U.S. Passport Card)
3. An inmate identification card issued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation
4. A driver’s License or Official Non-Driver’s ID Card issued by any U.S. State
5. A Canadian or Mexican Driver’s License issued by the local government
6. A U.S. Military ID
7. A valid Foreign Passport from the Applicant’s Country of Citizenship
8. An Employee ID issued by a Public or Local Government Agency/Office
9. An identification card issued by a federally recognized tribal government
10. A valid consular identification document issued by a consulate from the applicant’s country of citizenship.
11. The oath or affirmation of one or two credible witnesses

What makes Golden Gate Mobile Notary different?
Can you help facilitate a Loan Closing or Estate Plan?
Can you pre-sign the documents before meeting with us?
Yes and no, it depends on the type of Notarization that’s being requested.
In California, we normally have two different types of Notarizations that we can perform. One of them is an Acknowledgment and the other is a Jurat. The Acknowledgment is used to verify the identity of ones signature on a given document as well as acknowledge that the person did indeed personally appear before the Notary. The Jurat on the other hand not only certifies the persons identity as valid and having appeared in front of the Notary, but also that they have made a sworn statement (given by the Notary) in person with regards to the document/statement in question. There is a slight distinction here between the two types of Notarization in that the Jurat requires personal appearance at the time of signing signing due to the fact that an affirmation is being given prior to signing. The Acknowledgment does also require personal appearance, however it does not require that the Notary visually be there to see that the signatory has signed the document in person.
Now you might be asking, does this mean you can do the Notarizations remotely if you are able to see my ID? It does not unfortunately. Since both types of Notarization require personal appearance as well as needing to sign/thumbprint the public record (aka Notary journal), the requirement to appear in person is an absolute must in the State of California.
