How it works
As a Mobile Notary Public, I will travel to your location or to a convenient public location of your choice to perform notarial services. Services and fees must be agreed to in advance and in writing, per South Carolina statute. In addition, I am 100% COVID-19 cautious. I will bring masks and sanitized pens, and do my best to accommodate your needs.
What is a notary?
A Notary is a responsible person appointed by the state government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths. I am authorized to notarize in South Carolina only.
What fees are charged by a Notary Public?
Notaries may charge to perform notarial acts. Notarial fees are based on the number of signatures, the type of appointment, the time spent traveling to and from the client’s location, and administrative costs.
What documents are notarized?
To deter fraud. An impartial witness (the Notary) ensures that the signers of documents are who they say they are and not impostors. The Notary makes sure that signers have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly.
How does a Notary identify a signer?
The Notary will ask to see a current identification document that has a photograph, a physical description, and a signature. A driver’s license, military ID, or passport will usually be acceptable.
Can any document be notarized?
For a document to be notarized, it must contain: 1) text committing the signer in some way, 2) an original signature (not a photocopy) of the document signer, 3) a notarial “certificate” that may appear on the document itself or on an attachment. The Notary fills in the certificate, signs it, and applies his/her seal to complete the notarization.
Is notarization required by law?
For many documents, yes. Certain affidavits, real estate deeds, and other documents may not be legally binding unless they are properly notarized.
Does notarization mean that a document is “true” or “legal”?
No. Notaries are not responsible for the accuracy or legality of documents they notarize. Notaries certify the identity of the signers. The signers are responsible for the content of the documents.
May a Notary give legal advice or draft legal documents?
No. A Notary is forbidden from preparing legal documents for others or acting as a legal advisor unless he or she is also an attorney.
I am not an attorney and cannot by law, interpret or explain the contents of any legal documents to you. If you have any important questions about your documents, please contact an attorney or the person who provided the documents to you. I am not allowed to draft legal documents, give advice on legal matters, including immigration, or charge a fee for these activities.
May a Notary refuse to serve people?
Only if the Notary is uncertain of a signer’s identity, willingness, or general competence, or has a good reason to suspect fraud. Notaries should not refuse to serve anyone because of race, religion, nationality, lifestyle, or because the person is not a client or customer. Discrimination on any basis is not a suitable policy for a public official.
