    Just identification that proves who you are so the notary can "notarize" that you are who you say you are. When we did the forms for my brother-in-law we just brought the forms themselves as well as our IDs & of course the money to pay the notary.

    To get a document notarized, the notary MUST witness the document being signed. That's what notarizing means, that the notary has seen the document signed, and has examined the ID of the person who signs it. Notarizing a document does NOT make a document "legal", it only means that someone showed up with a document, signed it in the presence of a notary, and presented proper ID. Notary publics generally don't even read the documents that they notarize, and they won't give a legal opinion about the document unless they also happen to be a legal professional and you pay them for their opinion, as well as notarizing the document. If the document is illegal, for instance it's a contract to perform criminal acts, notarizing the document won't make it valid. Let a lawyer look at the document first, to make sure it's legal, if this is important to you.

    The document that needs to be notarized MUST be signed in front of the Notary otherwise its legally invalid. The Notary has to witness the document to be signed by writer before they can legally notarize it

    Nothing but the document. Banks can usually notarize a document for you.
