Consumer news: Notaries public

Consumer alert: Appearing before a notary

To get valid notarial services in Washington State, you must appear before a notary public for acknowledgements, verifications, and to have your signature witnessed. This means all the signers must be physically present with the notary while the notarization is taking place. A video image, phone call, or other form of non-physical representation doesn't count.
