A Florida Notary Public... Can Not:
- Notarize a document unless the signer personally appears before the notary public at the time of the notarization.
- Notarize a document outside the State of Florida.
- Notarize a signature on a document requiring two signatures unless the notary stipulates which signature is being notarized by indicating such in the acknowledgement.
- Notarize a document that has blank spaces therein.
- Post date or antedate any acknowledgement on a document.
- Notarize a document if the signer is the mother, father, son, daughter, or spouse of the notary public.
- Notarize a document if the notary public has a financial interest in or is a party to the underlying document.
- Notarize his or her own signature.
- Transfer a Florida notary commission to another state (since notary laws differ from state to state, commissions are not transferable).
