Whether this is your first time needing a notary public or a returning customer, you can be assured that I will come to you; at the comfort of your home, your place of business or even meet at a local coffee shop.


My notarial practice is able to remain very competitive on price due to economies of scale. This means that I am able to keep my notarial services competitive as well cost-effective as I have a client-base that regularly requires documents to be notarized. By managing my costs, I have had the opportunity to use my expertise to help vast numbers of clients achieve their business and personal goals without delay. I will travel to my clients location, where I do Notarization of documents and including loan document signings. The trend today is for the (“Mobile Notary” or sometimes called the “Notary Travel” or “Traveling Notary”) Notary Public to meet with clients at their convenience, in a place of their choosing. My competitive fees includes traveling as well as Notary fees.

 

***Remember that per signature means per signer, per document. So two (2) signers on the same document is two (2) signatures, and it is NOT how many times the notary is required to sign or stamp***

As a certified notary can "only" serve as either a Witness or a Notary, but not both on a document.

 

Our fee structure and schedule remains unchanged currently. So our pricing will be the same as listed, and as expected.

NOTARIZED SIGNATURES

***

THIS IS A MUST - NO EXCEPTIONS

The document signer(s) must be PHYSICALLY PRESENT before the notary. An essential element of the notarial act is personal, face-to-face communication between the document signer(s) and the notary. This is necessary for the notary to assess the signer’s comprehension of the transaction and willingness to sign, to help ensure that neither coercion nor fraud are present, and to administer the required verbal ceremony. Physical presence of the signer is so important that notaries who fail to require it can be charged with a crime and punished.
