A Mobile Notary Service Is A Convenient Way To Get Your Documents Notarized

by Sherri Robinson

It's often a pain when you have legal documents to sign and your signature needs to be notarized. You may have no idea where to find a notary service, or you could even be housebound or in the hospital and not be able to get to one. An easy solution is to call a mobile notary service. They'll come to you so you don't have to worry about how you'll get your documents notarized. Here are some tips for using a mobile notary service.

Call To Set An Appointment

If you don't need a notary urgently, then set an appointment with the notary service to meet at your convenience. In some cases, the service might be able to come to you right away, but emergency service might cost more.

You can meet the notary in a variety of locations if they agree. They might come to your home, office, hospital, library, courthouse, or even a coffee shop. If you feel uncomfortable about them coming to your home, agree on a convenient public place to meet.

Let The Notary Know What You Need

It's also a good idea to let the notary know what you need them for. There are certain things a notary cannot do. Their actions are controlled by state laws, so tell the notary in advance what you need so they can let you know if they can help you or not.

Let The Notary Know Of Potential Problems

The purpose of getting documents notarized is so the notary can verify your identity and confirm you are aware of what you're signing. If there are special circumstances involved with signing the documents, let the notary know when you set your appointment. If the person signing doesn't speak English, or if you don't have a driver's license, tell the notary so they can advise you if you need to take care of these things before they can notarize your documents.

Find Out What You Need

Since the notary needs to identify you properly, you'll need some form of official identification, such as a state ID or driver's license. Ask your notary about what types of identification or documents you need to bring with you to the meeting. Also, ask about pricing, so you know ahead of time how much the mobile notary service costs so you're prepared to pay.

A mobile notary service provides the same services as any other notary, they are just much more convenient to use. You may not need to use a notary very often, but if you ever do, consider calling a mobile notary service.
