Adoption is unique in the notarization world. Adoption documentation is highly regulated and requires that the notary not only provide the date but the time of the notarization and signature. Additionally, while notaries can act as witnesses in the state of Florida for many documents, they are not permitted to act as witnesses for adoption documents, which have many other rules involved.
