Pursuant to the laws of the State of Michigan, notaries acting on behalf of the City of Plymouth are witnessing your signature on a document. The Notary does not verify the accuracy or legality of the document being signed.

City of Plymouth Notaries shall:

  • Notarize documents for signers who are physically present and can be properly identified.    Do not pre-sign your documents.
  • Confirm the identity and signature of all individuals against a valid government-issued photo identification card (i.e. driver’s license or state ID).
  • Notarize documents written in English only.
  • Notarize complete documents, which shall not contain blanks or missing information or pages.
  • Notarize only ‘original’ documents bearing the signer’s original, wet-ink signature (not a photocopy or fax of a signed document)
  • Not notarize copies of passports, I-9 forms, closing paperwork, financial documents, trusts or wills.
  • Not be responsible for reviewing content of the paperwork presented or executing documents (ex.: mortgage documents should be taken to a bank or mortgage company).
  • Not certify copies of documents or notarize that a record is an original or true copy of another record. If you need a ‘certified true copy’ of a document, you must go to the place of origin to obtain it.
  • Not certify that a statement is true or certify documents attesting that you are a citizen, are alive, etc.
  • Not notarize documents that are post-dated.
  • Not perform a notarial act electronically.

We reserve the right to refuse to notarize any document.
