Finger Printing

Hi all, I’m curious if any one else does finger printing, and how they go about asking the signers if they would participate?

Fingerprints/thumbprints are not required in Florida. You can ask them to thumbprint your journal but, if they refuse, you cannot refuse to notarize based on that

In 14 years here I thumbprinted one person - because I had a bad feeling about him - wanted it for that extra layer of security - thankfully nothing ever came of it

Thank you for responding, Yes I did know Florida doesn’t require finger printing, however I was also looking at that second layer of security and just doing as a precautionary measure. Should they refuse I’ll just note it and move on.
