Notary Public and Signing Agent, State of California

Signers can be taken off guard when asked to give a fingerprint in a Notaries Journal, and with the laws in California having expanded the requirements of fingerprinting in 2013, this is becoming more and more likely a request a Signer can expect to run into.

A fingerprint is the most effective form of identification. It protects the signer from fraud, and is an important step in assuring your documents will be upheld if challenged in court.

California law states that a fingerprint is required in a Notary Journal for the following documents:

  1. Power of Attorney
  2. Any deed or document affecting real property
