Before I can notarize a document, please tell me if you need an Acknowledgement or Jurat. Please ask the requesting agency/person, as I cannot make that determination for you.
Acknowledgement: The form most frequently completed by the notary public is the certificate of acknowledgment. In the certificate of acknowledgment, the notary public certifies that the signer personally appeared before the notary public on the date indicated in the county indicated.
Jurat: The second form most frequently completed by a notary public is the jurat. The jurat is identified by the wording “Subscribed and sworn to (or affirmed)” contained in the form. In the jurat, the notary public certifies that the signer personally appeared before the notary public on the date indicated and in the county indicated; That the signer signed the document in the presence of the notary public; That the notary public administered the oath or affirmation to the identity of the signer.
The fee is the same for either, $10/notary signature.
It is customary for the Notary to ask the oath-taker or affirmant to raise a right hand in a pledging gesture or to place it over one's heart. The Notary has discretion to require any bit of ceremony -- such as placing one's left hand on a Bible or other revered text -- that the Notary believes will be most compelling by appeal to the individual's conscience. Oaths and affirmations should be taken seriously and always administered with a degree of formality.
The signer must present identification issued by the state or federal government that contains a photograph, a physical description and the bearer’s signature, such as:
•California Driver's License
•California Identification Card
•Two credible witness's (for a person who does not have current ID)
•Mexico Driver's license
•US Military ID Card
•Inmate ID Card
•Other State Driver's License, Other State Identification card
•Canada Driver's License
•Foreign Passports stamped by USCIS

Only notaries public employed by a financial institution, during the course and scope of the notary’s employment with the financial institution, are authorized to demand acceptance and payment of foreign and inland bills of exchange, or promissory notes, or to protest for nonacceptance or nonpayment.
3. Government Code section 8211 – Fees.
Deletes the prescribed maximum fees for every protest for the nonpayment of a promissory note or for the nonpayment or nonacceptance of a bill of exchange, draft, or check, for serving every notice of nonpayment of a promissory note or of nonpayment or nonacceptance of a bill of exchange, order, draft, or check, and for recording every protest. No fee can be charged for a protest because only notaries public working for a financial institution are authorized to execute a protest.
