According to CA CCP 446 A person verifying a pleading need not swear to the truth or his
or her belief in the truth of the matters stated therein but may,
instead, assert the truth or his or her belief in the truth of those
matters "under penalty of perjury."
It does not state that notarization is required to be verified. Is notarization required?
Notarization is not required for any pleading.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advise" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.

Mr. Doland is correct. You will need to attached a "verification" to the end of the pleading, which verifies under penalty of perjury that the statements are true, upon personal knowledge or information and belief. !
