What is a Notary Public?

A notary public is a public official commissioned by the Secretary of State to administer oaths and affirmations, witness signatures, and perform other duties as permitted by state law. Notaries are most commonly called upon to act as the official, unbiased witness to the identity and signature of the person who comes before the notary for a specific purpose.

What Types of Documents do you Notarize?

There are many types of documents a Notary Public may notarize as long as they are lawful. A partial list of documents may include Corporate, Real Estate, Divorce, Trust Documents, Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, Adoption, Custody, Medical, Banking, Personal.  Some of the documents we notarize include:

What is a Power of Attorney?

Quite often a family member or close friend is unable to travel to banks, government agencies, towing yards and other facilities in order to conduct a simple legal transaction.  You can provide a power of attorney signed by the person who is unable to travel for withdrawing money from a bank account, selling property, or allowing someone to conduct business transactions.  Whatever the reason, a power of attorney may be required.

What is the difference between a Public and a Confidential Marriage License?
A public license is public record and a confidential one is not -- it is confidential. Upon the request of any person and payment of the search fee, the County Clerk may conduct a search for a confidential marriage certificate for the purpose of confirming the existence of a marriage; however, the date of the marriage and any other information contained in the certificate shall not be disclosed except upon order of the Court. Government agencies also receive information to confirm the existence of marriages.
