What is a notary?

A notary is most commonly used in a contractual situation.  If two parties are entering into a contact that requires legal signatures, a notary would be used to confirm the identity of the parties.  This basically means that identification had been provided to the notary prior to the signing of the document.  The notary is attesting that they have actually witnessed the signature and the person's identity has been confirmed by the notary. 

The notary will then provide a stamp of their approval on the documents and will sign off on the documents as well.
