A Notary Saving a Divorce?
Recently, a family law attorney in Santa Clara County contacted me in the late afternoon. Her client in Palo Alto is in the process of finalizing an ugly divorce. One of the last pieces is notarizing the Interspousal Transfer Deed. The attorney’s location is about 25 miles from her client. She wanted to have the deed notarized the following day. Within an hour or so after we spoke, she emailed me the documents. I reviewed them and noticed her client’s last name was spelled incorrectly. She was grateful that I caught the typo and was able to update it and send it to me.
Imagine if the document was notarized with the typo. If the error was caught at the County Clerk’s office when it was to record, they would reject the documents. This would delay finalizing the divorce which was to happen in a couple of days. Can you imagine the emotional stress? What if the error wasn’t caught at the County Clerk’s office? The spouse receiving the property (grantee) really would not have full ownership of the property. What challenges would that bring along since the divorce agreement wasn’t followed? Some level of stress would occur.
When you have important documents you need notarized do you have a detail-oriented professional mobile notary you can count on?
