Get to know your local community mobile notary, sooner rather than later!   Times are changing and getting a document notarized is no different.

Have you tried to get your bank to notarize a non-bank related document lately?  No can do.

In the case of financial documents, banks often have notaries to notarize financial documents. If they are not financial documents, chances are your bank will refuse on the basis that their insurance doesn’t cover it.  How about trying to get a notary to notarize a Power of Attorney or Last Will and Testament of an aged and or disabled parent?

 

Are your hands tied when it comes to getting a document notarized?

It can be a nightmare especially if they have not been able to update their drivers’ license or passports on expiration.  Have you tried asking the convalescent home or hospital to notarize the document for you?  Chances are they refused for  some legal reason. If your family member is seriously ill and has legal business to be handled, chances are you are feeling helpless and desperate.  I empathize, however the only solution is to think ahead!

Mobile Notaries are always available to help and meet you at your convenience, however, if they don’t personally know the signer is who they or you say they are, the are not legally allowed to notarize your document. Neither would it be legally prudent for them to do so.

Remember, there are two sides to every notarization; the verified signature and the recording of the signatures, dates and the type of document signed. If your document ever needs to be verified, could you even track down the notary or the records?  Did the notary even record the transaction in a Notary log?  Critical moments like these is not the time for shortcuts. These details exist in Notary law for your protection as well as the Notary.

Think ahead on these issues, get to know your local mobile notary and develop a relationship while everything is still in place.  In doing so, if that day comes, a professional notary will be able to assist you with a legally, viable solution for your notarization.
