Always keep in mind, California notaries acknowledge and/or affirm signers, NOT documents. IF You need to certify a copy of an original document, like a passport, background check, bank statement, etc. A copy certification by document custodian may suffice for your purposes.
Important note: It is YOU, the holder of the document (document custodian, not the notary) that will be asked to take an oath that the document is a true, complete and correct copy of the original. *Please note: you should check with the agency receiving the document whether this will be sufficient.
