What is a Notary Public?

A Notary Public certify the proper execution of many of the life-changing documents of private citizens.

A Notary’s duty is to screen the signers of important documents — such as property deeds, wills and powers of attorney — for their true identity, their willingness to sign without duress or intimidation, and their awareness of the contents of the document or transaction.

denied notary service

Will your parent be able to sign a Durable Power of Attorney? Notary service will be denied if

broward notary 954-866-5056Notaries have a single obligation to determine whether an individual signing a document is coherent enough to understand the contents of the documents they are signing.  This is the sole purpose of a Notary.

Notary service will be denied if the signer can not answer a few simple questions and is unaware of what they are signing.

Far too often I am scheduled for a notary service call that completely contradicts the purpose of the signing. I do not get paid for my time going to a rehab center to only come to find the signer unable to sign because they have an inability to speak due to a stroke side-effect or unable to comprehend the situation because of a brain injury.

Although I understand the importance and urgency of getting these documents executed to help manage someone’s life affairs after a serious illness, I must deny service to any one I determine can not understand the forms they are signing.

A signer must be able to answer a few questions like….

  • When is your birthdate?
  • What did you eat for dinner last night?
  • What colors are on the American flag?
  • How many letters are in the word CAT?

If a signer can not answer a few simple questions, he surely will not be able to understand the legality of a document.

When scheduling notary service, please evaluate the condition of the signer and pre-determine their abilities to comprehend their meeting with the notary.
