JCPL usually has a notary public available during business hours on weekdays. However, you should call ahead to ensure a notary will be available. Call 850-342-0205

Please do not sign the document/s before meeting with the notary. Before your notary appointment you should make sure the document needs to be notarized and determine which notarial act is needed. The notary may not be able to assist you without this information.

In addition, please make sure all signatories are competent to sign and can be physically present. Please make sure you have enough witnesses to complete the document. Many legal documents, including wills and powers of attorney, require 2 witnesses who are not related to you. Everyone who is signing, including witnesses, should bring a form of legal identification such as a State ID, driver's license or passport.

Legal advice

Notaries are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice. This includes advice about whether a form is legal or sufficient, how to fill out a form, which form to use, or which notarial act is needed. Please contact an attorney or legal advisor if you need legal guidance.
