 03  How much do you charge to notarize a document?


It all depends of the type on document that needs to be signed. At Mobile Notary Kingdom we charge $10 per signature plus travel fees. If you have multiple documents to be signed contact us and we'll work out a deal! While the law does not address miscellaneous travel fees for notarial acts. Notaries are allowed to charge a travel fee as long as the signer is made aware prior to the notary travelling and the transaction occurring. Travel fees are not notary fees and should be treated as separate charges.


 04  Can a Notary Give Legal Advice?

No, No, No a notary cannot give any advice or opinions that should be given by an attorney.

Notary publics have a very limited, specific role: to authorize oaths, to verify identity, and to confirm the signatures on a document. It is illegal for a notary public to act as legal counsel or provide a second opinion. 

If a notary is under the impression that a signer is not of sound mind or thinks that the transaction is illegal, they can always choose not to notarize.
