When signing an agreement, contractors sometimes ask themselves, “Does my contract need to be notarized or certified?” If you and your spouse have the ambition of an undisputed divorce or divorce, you submit a settlement agreement to the court. This agreement must be notarized to prove that you both agree with the terms and that you have not been forced to sign by the other party. Impressive! Thank you for your answers. I think I`m going to stay away from debt settlement contracts! So I made one against all your advice and my best judgment last night. This was my first and last!! The signer couldn`t have been nicer, but it all rubbed me badly. First, there should be no presentation for the notary. .
