Hello November!

It’s been a good year so far and with 2018 winding down, I am excited to complete it and plan for the next. I really plan to give more to the notary life.

I hope to be able in 2019 to serve you even more than 2018.

We celebrate this month on November 7th National Notary Day so hug your fav notary. 

All in your business ( The questions you encounter on our first call)

 

The initial call for a general notary appointment can seem very invasive. I am going to ask a lot of questions to gauge what I will be doing as well as whether my services are sufficient for you. Feel free to ask me any questions as well.
Some of the questions you will encounter are:

Where are you located (state) – this is related to pricing and can determine where we are meeting

What document is needing to be notarized?-everything can’t be notarized or performed in every state. I can’t certify a copy in MD, I cannot notarize any document issued by the vital records (birth cert, death cert, marriage license)

Does it have notarial wording on the document?- this will determine if I need to bring the wording with me or not

If not, what option would you like? (jurat vs. acknowledgment vs. signature witness)

Do you have a religious preference ( oath vs. affirmation)

How many signers are needing to sign?- this affects cost and time allocated for this signing

Will all signers be present at this appointment? Again a logistical question

What location will we meet at? – I can scout and find a public location or a library to meet if not comfortable with meeting at your home or work. I am flexible and we can even meet on the hood of my car!

Do you have a valid Picture ID (Driver’s License, ID, Passport)- I have to verify who you are and that the photo matches. I will examine this once in hand and I am transitioning to an online log, called NotaryAct. I will ask for your consent to photograph the ID as well for my log if it is taken electronically. You will still have to sign, and give me information that I am to keep secured and under wraps by law.

Once we speak there might be other issues or questions. Please keep an open mind and understand I am attempting to help you, to protect you as well as myself and uphold the integrity of the notary public’s role in fraud protection.
