Can A Jurat Signature Be Corrected?

NNA Hotline Tip logo

If someone mistakenly signs a document needing a jurat before they are in the presence of the Notary, can it be crossed out and re-signed? Or should the document be redone?K.V. New York

The signer may simply re-sign the document in front of you. The other signature should not be crossed out. If a date is requested, the signer should include the current date they appeared before you.

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
