Notary Services

Certain documents must be notarized in order to have legal effect. State governments have deemed it necessary to enlist a trained individual to assist with signing certain formal and corresponding legal documents. Following their official appointment, a “notary public” performs as a quasi-public officer to attest to the proper execution of these important documents.

Examples of Documents:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Deeds
  • Contracts
  • Affidavits

Please bring a valid & unexpired government-issued photo identification. There are some documents that may require witnesses in addition to the notarization. Please share the type of document when booking your session, and check in if you need support finding someone to witness if such a requirement is mandated by the laws of your state.

Fees for notarial acts are a sliding-scale rate of $0-10. If requested it is sometimes possible to arrange travel to a requested location, which may include an additional fee due to distance and time spent on commute.
