Document Requirement

Most delays are caused by improperly prepared documents. You can avoid rejected requests by checking your documents carefully before sending or bringing them for certification. Follow these tips:
  • Documents must be originals or certified copies -- plain copies cannot be certified.
  • If a certified copy can be obtained from an officer in West Virginia (such as a birth, marriage or death certificate, deed, will, or license), a notary is not authorized to certify a copy.
  • A certified copy from a County Clerk, Circuit Clerk or Registrar must have an original signature of the clerk or a deputy and a raised impression seal.
  • A notarized document must include the proper notary affidavit (acknowledgment statement), the notary's original signature, and the notary's rubber stamp seal.
  • A document with only the notary's signature and seal cannot be certified. Click here to view examples of notary acknowledgement statements that should accompany the notary seal and signature.
