Can a spouse sign your name to a legal document?

If a person is legally married to someone. Can that spouse legally sign your name to a legal affidavit or have a legal document notorized with that person's consent?

NO a notary has to see the person and the ID and match the signatures etc. etc.

Only if she has a mandate, better know as power of attorney.

No, very illegal

2009-07-02 15:36:17 +0000
Not without " Power of Attorney".

No. Nothing can be notarized if it is not signed by the actual person who is supposedly signing it. Not even with "consent".

oh, i see. in this case no. that's not legal. only you can sign your name to a legal document.

Absolutely not!


2009-07-02 15:30:38 +0000
Only if the spouse has your power of attorney. Otherwise, No!

Spouse could only sign legal document if the spouse has power of attorney. A spouse could probably never sign an affidavit, even as power of attorney because an affidavit is considered a personal knowledge statement of the affiant.

only if said spouse is in a coma, or similar situation, and the spouse has power of attorney.

No, not legally. and the person that notarized the document shouldn't be notarizing signatures unless you sign in front of them. You can have the notary's license revoked for that.
