Current law changes allow us to service more States that accept online notarizations.

Although we have an office, due to COVID 19 restrictions our focus is to provide online notarizations.
With the proliferation of identity theft and the billions of dollars in cost to individuals and society, Notaries must diligently focus on demanding the signer’s physical presence and proof of the signer’s identity. That isn’t all, though; the Notary should determine that the signer is intentionally signing the document and is aware of what the document is. The NNA’s Notary Public Code of Professional Responsibility, Guiding Principle III, states:
“The Notary shall require the presence of each signer and oath-taker to screen each for identity and willingness carefully, and to observe that each appears aware of the significance of the transaction requiring a notarial act.”
The notary must be diligent in assuring that the person, even if it is grandma, is physically in their presence Virtually in many cases and is indeed the person named in the documents.
The notary must apply the standard of reasonable care to assessing grandma’s ability to knowingly and willingly sign those documents as well. Most states’ Notary laws don’t specifically require Notaries to do so. However, to protect the public in general and our eldest citizens in particular, it is imperative that Notaries take the extra step to verify that signers of powers of attorney and other high-value documents have voluntarily signed their names and understood what their documents mean if the trust that the notarial seal implies is to be maintained.
There are many things that Notaries can do to become a force in preventing elder financial exploitation and abuse.
Some of the red flags include:
· Someone other than the signer requests the notarization
· You have been told that the signer is sedated or medicated
· The signer appears confused, lethargic, tired, or sleepy
· The signer appears reluctant to sign the document
· A friend or family member seems to be pressuring the signer to execute the documents
· The signer/agent seems to be in a rush or hurry to have the notarization completed
Once the signers present themselves for the notarization, the Notary must assume control of the notarial process by directing it from start to finish. Unless witnesses are needed, the Notary should seriously consider removing everyone but the signer from the room. This offers the Notary a one-on-one opportunity to directly assess the signer’s awareness and intention to sign the document and confirm that the signer is free from duress or pressure to sign the documents. This experience culminates in the signer acknowledging his or her signature to the Notary or swearing to any required oath for the notarization.
Can I assist my elderly (client, parent, relative, friend...) to make sure the notarization is done?
The signer must answer any questions without interference by anyone. No coercion, leading, or answering for the signer. The notary does not provide legal advice.
How much will I pay for the notarization?
Please refer to the schedule and fees on previous page.
I have more questions, how do I speak to someone?
Please feel free to email your questions to the notaries, David J Moreno or Sarah Moreno Belikov at email@example.com
