Hotline Tip: Notarizing For A Three-Year-Old?

NNA Hotline Tips For NotariesI’ve been asked to notarize a copy certification by document custodian, but the passport holder is only three years old. Who should sign in this case? - D.P., Oakland, CA

In the case of a young child, you are actually being asked to notarize the signature of the person requesting the notarized copy, or the custodian of the document. Generally, this would be the parent or guardian of the minor.

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
