questions & answers

Question: I am filling out the paper work "application to set aside a misdemeanor" and Im not sure if I have to get a notary for my signature at the bottom or if I leave that section blank for the court. It says "Subscribed and sworn before me on this date: by:" I am not sure who fills out this section which is followed by a notary. Please advise!

Answer: In Coconino County, where it appears the application is from, does indicate the form must be signed by a notary public in the section you are referring to. That particular section is for the notary public to complete, verifying your identity on the date you sign the form. That is, do not sign the application until you are before the notary public so this person can verify your identity. You will need contact the notary public for their rules, but generally they require a valid current government issued identification that includes your photo and signature.
