 * At the moment, we require you to enter the last four digits of a U.S. Social Security number to use in assembling the security questions to verify your identity. We are actively working to build a solution to support foreign citizens who need to Notarize their signatures on documents relating to court proceedings, property or transactions which are either in the U.S. or substantially connected to the U.S.  (U.S.-based notaries cannot notarize signatures on documents which have no substantial connection or relationship to U.S. property, court proceedings or transactions).
**If you are currently traveling or residing outside of the United States, please enter your current U.S. address or most recent address at which you resided for an extended period of time.
