I've never seen a notary read the document they're witnessing a signature to.

Yeah, does the notarization need to be in Chinese or is it just that the document is? Because all the notary is doing is affirming that the the signer presented valid ID and signed the document in front of the notary.

From what I've read online, they don't need to read the documents and can notarize documents in a foreign language, but they reserve the right to not notarize docs if they have concerns about the documents being misrepresented? None of my banks are willing to notarize the documents and a few local notaries I called also said the same. My sister also had to find a Chinese notary service in California.

What if you try someplace less rules-y than a bank? Autotag or UPS store or something?

Sadly, I had this experience with French documents. UPS wouldn’t do it. Finally, my sisters bank would do it so I drove up there with her and had her. I was at my wits end until this person helped.
