Frequently Asked Questions
Can I perform a notarization for a minor and if so, how?
Yes, you can notarize a document for a minor. Florida does not stipulate an age limit for completing a notarization for a minor, but you are required to follow the same standards you would for any other notarization. For instance, the minor must physically be present, proper identification must be presented and you must establish the minor is not being coerced into signing and understands the document. The parent cannot sign for the child.
For full details of how to complete a notarization for a minor and information regarding other challenging notarizations, consider purchasing either the Notary Education Course or the ASN Florida Notary Handbook.
