Most Noataries have encountered an issue with personal appearance at some point in their career. Here is an example of how to resolve the situation.

If you were asked to notarize a car title and the person who was supposed to sign did not show up what would you do? The seller said that would be okay because the other person was his cousin and he would take full responsibility for the actions. Should you continue with the notary? Definitely not!

You must explain to the seller that in order for you to perform the notarization the other party must appear before you with the proper identification to verify their identity and if not you would have to terminate the notary.

A notary cannot notarize any document where the signer is not present. There is no exception to this rule.
