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.
How to Prepare Your Document
If you've uploaded a document that needs witness signatures, click the Requires Witness toggle to turn it ON. (Eye Icon)
How does it work?
- Signers need to provide their 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 witnesses are needed, 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.
