Notary Public Background
In Arizona, a Notary Public is a public officer commissioned by the Secretary of State to perform Notarial Acts, as defined in the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.). A Notary, in essence, serves as an impartial witness [A.R.S. § 41-328(B)].
Government offices, businesses and the public rely on the accuracy and integrity of Notaries Public. This means the Notary should take the required steps to authenticate signatures and ensure that they properly complete all notarizations performed.
Many documents require a notarization in an effort to deter fraud, to prove the authenticity of the signature and to ensure that a signature was made willingly and not under duress. Therefore, it’s essential that a Notary accept a valid form of identification, as defined in statutes, to determine that a signer is who he or she claims to be.
Because the prevention of fraud and deception is central to the Notary’s role, it is essential that a Notary have no conflict of interest when notarizing a document. In other words, a Notary Public cannot be a “party to the transaction” or a “party to the instrument.” The Notary may have no financial or beneficial interest in the transaction, no matter how small. Moreover, in Arizona, Notaries Public are prohibited from notarizing his or her own signature, as well as the signature of any person who is related to the Notary by marriage or adoption [A.R.S. § 41-328(B)]. A notarization on a document indicates that a Notary Public has taken all reasonable steps to verify a signer’s identity before notarizing that person’s signature. Additionally, if the notarization performed is a Jurat, the document signer also is required to vouch for the truthfulness of the document.
