Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I have to be present to sign or can I send the documents via email already signed?

A. You will need to appear in person with your unsigned documents for our notaries to provide notary services for you. 

Q. Can I have a statement

A. Yes. You must select the necessary notary certificate for our notaries to notarize the statement. Our commissioned notaries are not allowed to determine the type of notarial act that you need us to perform. In addition, they are not attorneys licensed to practice law and they may not give legal advice. We recommend that you speak with an attorney for any legal guidance before your scheduled appointment. 

Q. Can you notarize a document that requires more than just me as a signer?  

A. Yes. We would only notarize your signature since you are present.

Q. I do not have a witness, but my paperwork says that I need one. Can the notary be the witness for me?

A. No. The state of Georgia prohibits the notary public to serve as a signer and a witness on the same document. You must secure an impartial witness to sign the witness section of your document in front of the notary public. 

Q. Can the notary answer questions that I may have about the types of documents that I should use of how I should handle the legal side of my paperwork? 

A. No. We are not attorneys licensed to practice law in the state of Georgia and we may not give legal advice or accept fees for legal advice.
