Frequently Asked Questions
Can I notarize documents out of state?
No, you cannot perform a notarial act out of state. You and the signer must physically be present in Florida, even if the documents are intended for use in Florida. Your jurisdiction as a Florida notary only extends to Florida.
That being said, you can perform a notarization in Florida and it would be valid in any other state or foreign country, so long as you followed Florida law at the time of the notarization.
You can find the full explanation of your jurisdiction in the ASN Florida Notary Handbook.
