Always verify ID on the phone before you agree to go by asking what name is on the ID and what is the expiration date etc whatever your state requires for notarization. Always insist that the person who is signing calls you , not a well meaning child or relative. Tell them that if the ID is not the same as you were told on the phone, you will not be able to notarize but they will owe you for coming, - so do'nt jive me on the ID details.

Linda, as far as i am aware all Valid ID's in NJ bear a Photo & have to be state or government issue. The only Document this person has is a Social security card & a medical card. Both only show a Number & a name.

Walt - your statute only says an ID with a physical description ... doesn't say anything about current or photo. ("at least one form of identification (ID) that provides a physical description of the signer-- e.g., driver's license").

Now, what is NJ's definition of "ID Document" - that's what you need to find out- it's possible a CWC, or Military ID, or municipal/state ID bearing a physical description will suffice.

If a person in a hospital or other place does not have Photo Valid ID?, How can a Notary do their job?
A credible witness cannot be used unless according to the law, the client must personally know the Notary & the witness.
and a Subscribing Witness is only used for Witnessing a signature.
