San Diego Notary

Geographic Jurisdiction

A notary public can provide notarial services throughout the State of California. A notary public is not limited to providing services only in the county where the oath and bond are on file. In virtually all of the certificates the notary public is called on to complete, there will be a venue heading such as “State of California, County of ___________.” The county named in the heading in the notarial certificate is the county where the signer personally appeared before the notary public. (Government Code section 8200)
