Who Needs A Mobile Notary?
Not everyone needs a mobile notary. Mobile notaries are for those who need a notary to come to them for convenience. If one has the option of using the notary at their bank, credit union or local postal services facility, that is the most economical option. Mobile notaries do not maintain a location for notarizing documents. We come to you and a fee is charged for that convenience. Often we can come to your home, but a public location is sometimes necessary.
What Is a Notary?
A notary acts as an official, unbiased witness to the identity and signature of the person who comes before the notary for a specific purpose. The person may be taking an oath or signing or acknowledging his or her signature on a legal document.
A notary is not an attorney and therefore, by law, cannot: explain or interpret the contents of any document; instruct one on how to complete a document; direct one as to the advisability of signing a particular document. Engaging in any of the aforementioned activities would be the the unauthorized practice of law and could cause the notary to face legal penalties that include the possibility of incarceration.
What Is a Signing Agent?
