The code of Virginia specifies five basic notarial acts:

1) Taking Acknowledgments

2) Administering Oaths

3) Certifying affidavits

4) Certifying depositions

5) Certifying “true copies” of documents*

We also offer assistance in the completion of the I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification)

* Virginia notaries are not authorized to certify copies of birth, death, or marriage certificates.  Only the Division of Vital Records/Statistics may perform such a certification.  If you need a certified copy of this type of document, you must request it from the state in which the individual was born.  As a fraud prevention measure, many states require that the request form be notarized – a Virginia notary can notarize your signature on this form. Virginia notaries are not authorized to perform marriage ceremonies.
