TOPIC: Can I refuse to notarize?

Can I refuse to notarize? 6 years, 10 months ago #2

Yes. If all of the requirements to perform a proper notarization have not been met, if you question the signer's competence, or suspect they are being coerced, you should refuse to notarize.

If you are uncomfortable with what you are being asked to do, you can refuse. For example, some religions may frown on one of their members performing a marriage ceremony, or you may be unwilling to notarize a will because of liability concerns.

There may also be limitations set by your employer during office hours, and they would be within their rights to impose them. Remember, if you are notarizing as part of your job, your employer shares your liability.
