A witness is an additional person who is not a party to the transaction and is present to witness the signing of the specific document. 


If you've uploaded a document that needs witness signatures, click the Requires Witness toggle to turn it ON (green).

How does it work? 

  • Signers will need to provide your own witness(es). Notarize does not provide witnesses.
  • The signer and the witness(es) must be in the same physical location.
  • It is the responsibility of the signer to ensure that the witnesses meet any state or document-specific requirements. This may include how many witness are needed, whether or not they can be related to you, or whether or not they can or can't be benefitted by the document. *Please note that we are not able to provide any legal advice, including witness requirements. 
  • Witnesses should be prepared to show a valid photo ID. A list of acceptable forms of ID are provided at the bottom of this document
