My wife lives four hours away. what is the process for having both of us notarize the MSA form? Do we both have to be there in person at the same time, or can I notarize it and send it off by mail to my wife for the second notarization?
As Mr. Fink stated, each signature can be notarized individually. You will each sign the document separately, in front of a notary.

You do not both have to be together. As long as each of you sign the document and get it notarized it does not make any difference if one signs first and mails it to the other.
