  1. A Notary Public is a person authorized by the government to authenticate the identity of signatories on legal documents. Notaries are most often used in real estate documents such as mortgages and real estate documents. It is also a public officer who serves the public in non-litigious matters usually about estates or real estates, special powers-of-attorney (SPAs), deeds and both global and foreign businesses. Moreover a mobile notary, charges a fee in the name of the state and there can be some other fees in the case you want the notary to travel to you in order to sign the papers.

  2. We all need Notary service at some point in our life. Whether you are buying a new home or a commercial land, leasing your property, starting a business in another country or migrating to a foreign country, or planning to adopt a child, the services of a Notary are imperative. With all the possibilities of fraud when it comes to legal matters, it is only sensible for someone to seek a legal Notary Public. Another factor to keep in mind is that not all Notaries are able to sign all forms of legal documents. This is another reason why you may choose to work with a large, online Notary service that can provide you with notaries whose skills match the service you seek.
