Notaries do not notarize documents, we notarize signatures on documents. While this may sound like "splitting hairs" the truth is the document is 100% irrelevant to the notarization. If you want something notarized because you think it will give credibility to the document itself you are wrong. The notarization only attests that the persons signature on the document is the person who showed the notary satisfactory evidence that he/she is the person who signed it.
