VA #Notary Questions

VA #notaries with questions about a Notarization?

If a notary has any questions or concerns regarding any act of a Notary Public, he or she should contact the Notary Section of the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth BEFORE performing that act.  However, all notaries public should be aware the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Office cannot give legal advice.

Virginia Notary Seal

What information is required to be on a Virginia notary’s seal/stamp?

A Virginia notary’s seal/stamp must contain the name of the notary exactly as it appears on the notary’s commission, the words “Notary Public” and “Commonwealth of Virginia.”  Any information included on the notary’s seal/stamp must be accurate.  The notary cannot strike through or white out an area to make a change.

Note:  Many notaries choose to add their commission expiration date and registration number to their notary seal/stamp.  That is an option and not required on the notary’s seal/stamp.  Referring to the 2014 Virginia Notary Handbookpage 8, A notary’s commission expiration date and registration number is required in the notary act itself.
