We have a Notary Public available during business hours
If we’re open, a Notary Public is available to you. Please have a valid, government issued ID with you to have a document notarized.
According to the National Notary Association (NNA):
As a Notary Public in Chesapeake, VA, we are an official of integrity appointed by state government (by the secretary of state) to serve the public as an impartial witness in performing a variety of official fraud-deterrent acts related to the signing of important documents. These official acts are called notarizations, or notarial acts. Notaries are publicly commissioned as “ministerial” officials, meaning that they are expected to follow written rules without the exercise of significant personal discretion, as would otherwise be the case with a “judicial” official.
A Notary’s duty is to screen the signers of important documents such as property deeds, wills and powers of attorney for their true identity, their willingness to sign without duress or intimidation, and their awareness of the contents of the document or transaction. Some notarizations also require the Notary to put the signer under an oath, declaring under penalty of perjury that the information contained in a document is true and correct.
