The fee to notarize a signature on a document is $15 per notarized signature. For example, if two people are signing the same document, the fee is $30. In cases of real estate purchases, the total number of signatures can be large, but most of the signatures are not notarized.
Every person requesting notarization of their signature must have a valid, unexpired photo identification. The most common forms of ID are: driver's license and passport. Some forms of military ID are acceptable, but they must contain the photo and signature of the person. If you do not have a valid, unexpired ID, you may bring two people with you who have a valid ID who can sign a statement confirming your identity.
