Easy, Convenient Notary Public Services from Altura Credit Union

What is a Notary Public?

A notary is an impartial witness that has been licensed by the state government. They verify that the person signing a legal document is who they say they are. They protect against fraud. A notary also makes sure that everyone signing a document is doing so willingly.

If you have a lot of important documents to sign, you must sign in the presence of a notary. Some of the documents that require notarization include:

  • Property deeds
  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Mortgage
  • Affidavits
  • Copies of diplomas, driver’s licenses, leases, Social Security cards, and medical records


Find a Notary Public You Trust with Ease

Sometimes finding a notary near you can be challenging and time-consuming. And with many freelance notary publics out there, it can be hard to know who to trust. You don’t want to meet up with a stranger to sign sensitive financial documents.

Altura Credit Union wants to make it as easy as possible for you to notarize all your important documents. That’s why we offer notarization services to all our members. You can feel comfortable stopping by one of our locations to have your paperwork notarized. Whether you have just one document to notarize, or you have an entire stack, Altura Credit Union is up for the challenge!


What to Do if You Need a Notary Public

If you need documents notarized, schedule an appointment at Altura today. Make sure you bring a current form of identification and all the documents you need notarized with you. You will need to sign these documents in the presence of one of our notaries.


What Kind of Identification is Acceptable to Show a Notary Public?

What Kind of Identification is Acceptable to Show a Notary Public?

The notary public will need to see a current form of identification in order to notarize your documents. There are a few types of ID that are acceptable:

  • State driver’s license
  • State-issued ID card
  • United States military ID card
  • United States passport
  • Resident alien ID card

These are acceptable forms of identification no matter what state you’re in. There are other kinds of identification that your notary will NOT accept, including:

  • Social Security card
  • Birth certificate
  • School ID

Can I Get Something Notarized After It Has Been Signed?

No, you cannot get anything notarized after it has already been signed. The notary public must be able to see the signer in person and verify his or her identification. If they don’t witness the signing process, there is no way the notary can verify that the signature is authentic.

How Long Does the Notarization Process Take?

This depends on how many documents you need to have notarized. Usually, the process doesn’t take very long. You can expect to be in and out of a branch in just a few minutes. To finish in the least amount of time, call Altura ahead of time to make an appointment.
