A question we often get is whether we notarize separation agreements.
The answer is yes. But there are a few things you should be aware of.
If you obtained your separation agreement from an online template it’s possible that it includes an acknowledgement for the Notary that requires the Notary to state that the agreement was signed by the parties
”Separate and apart” from one another. If the is the case, please note that you must attend separate and apart. The parties to the agreement cannot attend at the same time. Furthermore, each party will be charged separately as part of a separate transaction. If you wish to attend together, please remove the phrase “separate and apart” from them agreement. If you have any questions about this please don’t hesitate to call one of our offices. See below for contact details.
