Notary Bulletin Hotline Tip: Can I List Multiple Documents Within One Journal Entry? By NNA Staff on November 29, 2012 in Hotline Tips I have been asked to notarize three different types of documents, all for the same signer. Do I need to create three separate journal entries, or can I simply list all three document types in the appropriate journal column? – N.C., Seattle, WA Although a journal is not a requirement in Washington, it is recommended that you create a separate journal entry for each document because the type of notarization and other entries for the journal may not be the same for all the documents. The same recommendation applies to Notaries in states with existing journal requirements, and in the case of California and Hawaii, is required. Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. –The Editors Email Share Leave a Comment Required * Name * Email *(for verfication purposes only) Comment * Enter the text shown in this image *(text is case sensitive)All comments are reviewed and if approved, will display.
