What to Expect from a Notary

I started my Notary business in 2009 in response to the need for someone to provide this service to businesses as well as those in our community who may not be able to drive somewhere to have their documents notarized. My clients know they can count on me for a consistently high level ofBill Ryan quote customer service and complete confidentiality.

If you've never worked with a Notary, there
are a few things to keep in mind:

  • In addition to verifying your identity, a Notary looks for signs of trouble—that you’re signing willingly.
  • Be sure to bring an unsigned document—not one that’s been signed ahead of time. It needs to be signed in front of the Notary, who needs to watch you sign.
  • Bring a picture identification—a current drivers license or passport.
  • Notaries are commissioned every four years, must stay current with changing laws and keep records.
