  • Are the notary’s credentials verified? AAN’s Mississippi Notary Locator allows you to confine your search results to only those notaries who have had their commissions verified by AAN.
  • Does the notary belong to a trusted notary association such as the American Association of Notaries?
  • How long has the notary been commissioned as a notary in Mississippi?
  • Are you able to go to the notary, or do you want the notary to come to you (i.e., would you prefer a mobile notary)? 
  • How much does the notary charge? By law, a Mississippi notary cannot charge you more than $5 per signature notarized, but some may charge less. Mobile notaries who travel to your home or place of business may also charge a travel fee.

What to Do When You Meet Up With Your Notary

Once you have used AAN’s Mississippi Notary Tool to find your ideal notary, prepare to meet your notary by taking the following steps:

  • Make sure you have a valid government-issued ID such as a driver's license or passport.
  • Check that your document has a notarial certificate. If it does not, determine what type of certificate you need by contacting your document preparer, the intended recipient, or an attorney. A notary public cannot advise you which type of certificate to attach.
  • Bring the document you need notarized with you. It's also important to have all necessary parties present to sign the document in front of the notary.

Still feeling unsure? Don't hesitate to ask the notary any questions you may have. They're there to help make the process go as smoothly and easily as possible.

Remember that a notary should always follow the proper procedures and adhere to legal requirements when notarizing documents. They should also carry appropriate insurance coverage and maintain a record of notarial acts as required by law. If you have any doubts about a notary's authenticity or professionalism, it's best to seek notarization services from someone else.
