My apologies for posting the image of the document, I should have blurred out their personal information.

I have another question however. Because the person who wrote the document signed it, I must meet with the person who wrote and signed the document then get their forms of I.D and fingerprint. Must I also get the signature, I.D, fingerprint of the person the letter is pertaining too?

Such as "Joe Smoe has applied to work for me. - Jim Slim"

So do I have to get Joe Smoe's and Jim Slim's signatures, fingerprints, and I.D's?

Paradox, one thing you do need to note - you are not required to get a thumbprint on ALL entries in your journal..Page 9 of your handbook specifically states:

"If the document to be notarized is a deed, quitclaim deed, or deed of trust affecting real property or a power of attorney document, the notary public shall require the party signing the document to place his or her right thumbprint in the journal."

https://www.sos.ca.gov/business/notary/forms/notary-handbook-2012.pdf

Many CA notaries (and others in other states) do require thumbprints for all notarizations - iMO that's placing requirements on your notarizations that your state does not require. Is it good security? Of course it is. But your state does not require it in all transactions.

Now, as to the second signer - is there a place for that second person to sign? Is it required that they sign and their signature be notarized? That's up to the document preparer - and not something you can advise them on.

Good Luck.

Of course, you are correct Marian. I try to be very careful with a signer's personal information. I would not post the document on a public board. I like to treat others information, the way I would like mine treated. I do cover all other entries in my journal also, before I go on to the next person. I try to be as cautious as possible with people's private, confidential information.

After a loan signing in someone's home, I wouldn't answer a neighbors question as to why I was there. The point I was trying to make is, try to protect other people's information as much as possible.

If they have a proper ID and also mentioned that want type of Notary they want.Because when you have complete all the basic thing that you need for that notarization there is no issue with that.

I designed my business cards on Vistaprint. Many logos and graphics to choose from, plus they are inexpensive.
I get many compliments on my cards. I also pay a little extra to have my name and calendar for the year on the
back side. If you put nothing on the back of the card, it will have a line from Vistaprint that says “Free from
Vistaprint”.
