Affidavit and Notary Services



Inter-State Investigative Services is proud to offer notary public and affidavit services. In Arizona, pursuant to Arizona Revised Statutes §§ 38-294, 41-313(9), and 41-328(B)), a notary public is a public officer commissioned by Arizona’s Secretary of State to perform notarial acts and is considered an “impartial witness”.

Generally speaking, our notaries are legally qualified and authorized to certify certain non-contentious legal claims made by people, and act as witnesses, providing their stamps of approval. For our notary to perform an acknowledgement or jurat, administer an oath or affirmation, or take an affidavit, it is imperative that you appear in person. There are no exceptions to this requirement.


Throughout the course of life, there are numerous occasions where people need legal documents to support their claims. Some are trivial (ex. obtaining certain licenses); some are not (ex. buying and selling property). In more serious matters, you may find yourself in need of legal documents to certify certain claims you want to make. These documents will contain facts or information claimed to be correct by you and get legal force when a notary public signs it. These documents, generally speaking, are called affidavits.

Affidavits are documents that contain facts and information you believe to be true and become legal when you sign it in the presence of one of our notaries. Our notaries are legally qualified and authorized to perform in non-contentious legal matters, which require legal certification of claims made by people.


While the force of Arizona law backs up all authorized work by our notaries, it is important for our clients to understand what notaries can’t do. Notaries cannot give legal advice or do anything that is considered as constituting the practice of law. They can’t execute any notarial certificate that contains false statements, are incomplete, or contain a signature of anyone related by marriage or adoption. As mentioned above, our notaries will not notarize a document without the signer being preset. Obviously, our notaries do not get involved in any kind of fraud or deceit with the intent to injure another person or substantially benefit the notary.
