WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?
The document requiring notarization and a valid photo identification: a driver’s license, State Issued Identification card, or passport.
- A notary public is not duly trained or certified to practice law. Therefore, notaries are unable to provide assistance in prescribing or determining the particular document a customer may need; selecting the type of notarization or certificate for a given document; preparing a document or giving advice on how to fill out, draft, or complete a document; providing legal counseling or advice in a legal matter that may or may not involve a notarial act.
- In addition, birth certificates and marriage licenses are publicly recorded documents and certified copies cannot be made by a notary. Certified copies are only available by contacting the specific government entity issuing the document (secretary of state’ s office, court of law, county clerk, or Bureau of Vital Statistics).
- Utah law requires that a Notary and the customer seeking notarization be able to communicate directly with each other. Library Notaries are not permitted to make use of a translator to communicate with a Notary Service customer. The Main Library has Spanish-speaking notaries. However, it is best to call ahead to see if one is available.
- The library notaries cannot notarize I-9 forms, nor can we provide an Apostille (a form that certifies the authenticity of a document that is issued in one country to be used and considered valid in another.) If you need an Apostille, please visit the Office of the Utah Lieutenant governor website for more information. https://authentications.utah.gov/
- In accordance with Utah Notarial Law, Notaries will not provide service if the customer, document, or circumstances of the request for Notary Service raise any issue of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for the Notary. In this event, the Library Notary may, at his/her sole discretion, decline to provide Notary Service.
