Arizona Mobile Notary
When two parties agree on an official matter or sign a contract, it is crucial to verify that they both consent to signing and to authenticate their identities. Doing this will make the documents legal. A notary public is an authorized and certified person who can perform these services.
Notaries public in Arizona provide several services, including:
- Witnessing signatures on official documents
- Ensuring that neither signing party is acting under duress or is being coerced into signing
- Verifying the identities of the people who are signing
These notary services are essential to make documents binding and legal, especially if they need to be used in a court of law. If the document doesn’t have a notary stamp or signature, it will be invalidated by a judge, and the agreement will not hold in court.
Arizona Notarial Acts
In Arizona, a few notarial acts are legally allowed:
- Jurats are sworn statements that require verbal affirmation or an oath. This notarial act is used to confirm the validity of a document’s contents. You need a photo ID, such as a driver’s license or a state-issued identification card to complete it.
- Acknowledgments are verifications of a signer’s identity. They confirm that the people who are about to sign a document are willingly doing so and not being coerced into it. You can sign the document before going to the notary. In this case, the notary will verify that the signature is yours. To complete the process, you will need a valid form of identification.
- Certified copies are where the notary public certifies the validity of a photocopy of an original document. The notary public must make a copy of the document themselves and not simply accept a copy that a person made. Any document can be certified as a copy by the notary public, except for marriage, birth, and death certificates, as well as divorce records, court documents, and real estate deeds.
It’s important to keep in mind that notaries cannot provide legal advice. For advice on legal matters, you’ll need to seek out attorney services.

Arizona Notary Public Duties
Arizona notaries are crucial to ensuring that signers of any agreement understand the content of the documents and sign without intimidation. Notaries verify signature validity and the signers’ identities. They do that for jurats, oaths and acknowledgments, and copy certification.
As such, notaries and signing agents are crucial to legal agreements and contracts.
Becoming a notary in Arizona requires a multiple-step process, and it’s an investment of both finances and time. Superior Notary Services notaries are certified and have gone through all the steps to become notaries public and signing agents:
- Complete an online application and print it out
- Purchase a $5,000 surety bond
- Submit the original signed application, bond form, and filing fee to the office of the Secretary of State
- Complete the notary public exam and receive your certification
- Purchase your notary seal, journal, and stamp
- Continue your notary education by receiving additional training
When choosing a notary, you should understand their duties, the documents they are responsible for notarizing, and their experience.
The notary is there to avoid fraudulent agreements and ensure that all signing parties understand what they are about to agree to through their signature.
The notary service is completed when you get the notary ink stamp and seal, which certifies the authenticity of the agreement and the document. Some of the most common documents that notaries can notarize are:
- Financial planning documents
- Affiliated business arrangement disclosure
- Corporate quitclaim deed
- Borrower’s disbursement authorization
- Hazard insurance authorization
- Borrower’s income certification
- Automatic drafting authorization
- Estate planning documents
- Medical documents and power of attorney
- Omissions correction agreement
- Reverse mortgages and grant deed
- Escrow waiver
If you need any of these documents notarized, you have to make an appointment with an available notary. But most of the time, notaries have limited availability. They might only be able to set appointments that conflict with your schedule.
That’s why getting reliable mobile notary services from experienced companies, such as Superior Notary Services, is often your best option. Instead of waiting for days or weeks for your notarial act appointment, you can have an experienced and certified Arizona notary public at your door anytime and anyplace.
