  2. Typically, a notary is not providing legal advice when witnessing a document that you are signing.

  3. There may be some exceptions to this rule, such as when a lawyer has prepared an affidavit and then notarized your signature on the affidavit.

  4. In most cases, a lawyer will be very reluctant to give legal advice to someone who is not an existing client who is simply getting a document notarized.

  5. If you wish to obtain legal advice on a document you are notarizing, you should indicate in advance that you will need legal advice on the document you are signing.

  6. Depending on the type of document you are signing and the background of the lawyer, the lawyer notarizing the document may be unable to provide you with the necessary legal advice.
