Good to know: how to receive California notary services when your ID is lost or stolen

Occasionally bad stuff happens to good people; you lose your driver license, or – worse – someone steals your wallet with all your IDs. Or maybe your elderly parent never had the need to have a driver license renewed, and you didn’t think about applying for a senior ID.

Now you need to sign that all important document for the bank; and the notary is telling you that without a valid ID, you cannot get that notary stamp on the document.

But wait; there is no need to despair. There is a way around the fact that you or a loved one is without an ID. You can receive California notary services without an ID, as long as you appear in front of the notary with two other people with current IDs who know you.

They will be your subscribing witnesses, meaning they will sign the notary journal swearing that they know you and that’s how the notary will be able, after collecting your signature on the notary journal, to identify you property and notarize the document.
