Void Notarization vs Unaccepted notarization

A void notarization: 1) one done by non notary 2) one done with the signer not present 3) one done by by a vegetative client incapable of communicating with the notary or 4) a totally missing notary notarial certificate. An unaccepted notarization is one where one or more elements of the notarial certificate are missing. The missing elements can only be corrected by the original notary!!!Otherwise, the document needs to be reprinted and re notarized provided the signer is still competent and willing to sign. Va now require notaries to have a reproducible seal. However,a notarization done prior to this requirement are valid!!!!VA has assigned a number to each notary. Again notarization done prior to this requirement are still valid.VA also require all notaries renewing their commission to sign exactly the same name that appeared on their driver's license. Prior notarization are still valid and acceptable. Some countries require the notary commission to be valid through the term of the adoption process. The requirement is not a VA requirement and does not void the notarization or make the notarization unacceptable. However, this causes a client to shop around for a notary whose commission is not about to expire.
