What If A Person Signs A Sworn Statement Before They Go To The Notary? By NNA Staff on July 05, 2017 in Hotline Tips

If someone mistakenly signs a document needing a jurat before they are in the presence of the Notary, can it be crossed out and resigned? Or should the document be redone? — K.V. NY
The signer may simply re-sign the document in front of you. The other signature should not be crossed out. If a date is requested, the signer should include the current date they appeared before you.
Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
