Yesterday morning, just after I finished a meeting in Santa Clara, CA 95051, I received a call for morning mobile notary services in Menlo Park, CA 94025. I arrived within 30 minutes and notarized the court documents for the signer who was bedridden. They had security concern with the document (with multiple pages), so in addition to the loose notary certificate, I embossed each of the pages. The loose certificate was needed, as the document did not include a notary block. On the loose certificate, in the bottom portion I wrote details about the document so it could only be used for the detailed document. The embossed pages can not be duplicated or exchanged, as the only person who has my notary embosser (which imprints the same information as in my notary stamp) is me. In addition, they had a Will. They wondered about executing the Will. I explained to them the Will required two witnesses present while the signer executed it.
Just after my Menlo Park, CA signing, I received a call to notarize a passport application for a minor in San Carlos, CA 94070 which was needed within the hour. I arrived within 20 minutes and completed the notarization for the busy business executive at his office.
After I dropped off executed loan documents at a title company in Campbell, CA 95008, I received a call for mobile notary service in San Carlos, CA 94070. An elderly man who just returned home from the hospital needed the bank’s own power of attorney document notarized. I worked with him and his family and notarized the power of attorney. The bank also required his wife to be notarized on the document. Unfortunately, she did not have a current valid photo ID.
Plan B was to obtain two credible witnesses with current valid ID’s who could take a oath stating his wife’s identity. The easiest source of credible witnesses are neighbors, as they are close. (Credible witnesses should not be immediate family members). With some exploration we discovered the neighbors were not available.
Plan C, the daughter tried to talking with the bank to see what they could do to help. It was going nowhere fast. I talked with the bank in bank lingo to see if they would witness his wife’s signing the bank’s power of attorney at the bank, as they usually do this instead of notarizing it (the only time it is notarized is when it’s executed outside the branch office). The bank said they could as she is their client and would further confirm it with security questions that only she can answer. Problem solved with all family members at ease.
I enjoy helping clients in their time of need in notarizing important documents for them.
