Unfortunately, due to the circumstances of a signer being unable to sign a document (physically), Certified Notary Public Signing Agent Sonita M. Leak, Owner of GreenvilleNotary.com had to sign on her behalf. Now, given several factors, including having two SEPARATE witnesses, witness the principal giving the notary permission to sign on her behalf and also witnessing the signature of the notary, the notarial process and stamping (or embossing); the task can be accomplished.
Normally, in the State of South Carolina, the notary public has the ability to act as one of the witnesses in the transaction, however, in the case that a principal cannot physically mark or sign a document and the notary takes his/her place, a separate second witness must be found. Also, keep in mind that MOST documents requiring witnessing cannot be witnessed by a relative by blood, marriage, or anyone related to an interest of the document.
