If you need a document notarized, please feel free to stop by our office in Engelmann Hall, Room 125, between 8:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday. No appointment is needed, but we suggest that you call ahead to confirm that our notary is available. No fee is charged for notary service.
Do not sign the documents in question until you are in the presence of the notary.
This is because your signature must be witnessed by the notary.
- A photo ID is required for notarization. If the documents require the signature of your spouse, or domestic partner, to be notarized, they must accompany you and bring their photo ID.
Also, please be aware that we are unable to make copies, certified or uncertified, of “vital records,” which include certificates of birth, death, divorce, annulment, marriage, etc. Copies of vital records must be obtained from their official custodian, such as a state or county office.
Furthermore, we will not certify that copies of documents (such as passports) are complete, full, true, and exact copies of the original document which they purport to reproduce.
Notary services are also provided by UWM’s Office of Legal Affairs, in Chapman Hall, Room 380.
