Is there any way I can revoke a notary signature?
No, a notary is a professional witness to legal written documents and can serve to legitimize them. The only to challenge a notary signature is if the notary's license had expired and they had failed to renew it.
You can challenge the actual document's authenticity or the person who signed it's legal competency, but the notary signature just serves as proof that the person who signed the document is the same person who is listed on the document.
No, not without potentially getting the notary in trouble. For example, if someone notarized a backdated document, like a deed, that is a felony so there is no way to get out of that without the notary implicating themselves in some type of fraud.. So it may be distasteful, but if that were to happen, it is in the notary's best interest to just maintain that it was properly notarized. Otherwise they risk criminal conviction and actual jail time.
