Notary services are adhered to California laws and regulations governing the practice and procedures of Notary Publics.
• The notary document signer must physically appear before the Notary at time of notarization – not before, and not after. A telephone call from the signer or the Notary's familiarity with a signature is not taken as a personal appearance
• The Notary must identify the signer through either (1) vouching of personally known, reliable, uninvolved witness who is under oath or (2) current government-issued ID card with photograph, signature and physical description
• The Notary must be impartial and disinterested and not notarize a document bearing Notary's name or Notary signature or that of Notary's spouse or relative, or notarize any document which will in any way benefit the Notary
• The Notary must make a record of each notarization and require document signer to affix signature – and where necessary thumb print – in official journal of notary act
• The Notary must not certify a copy of a birth certificate or other vital record or of a recordable document such as a deed. Copies of these documents must be issued only by the appropriate public records custodian, and not by the Notary.

California law requires any non-attorney notary public who advertises notarial services in a language other than English to post a prescribed notice, in English and the other language, that the notary public is not an attorney and cannot give legal advice about immigration or any other legal matters. The notary public also must list the fees set by statute that a notary public may charge for notarial services. In any event, a notary public may not translate into Spanish the term “Notary Public,” defined as “notario publico” or “notario,” even if the prescribed general information 17 notice also is posted. A first offense for violation of this law is grounds for the suspension or revocation of a notary public’s commission.
