Notary Service in the evening can be difficult to attain. I know, because I’ve sought a notary in the evening at one point, being a notary myself. Unfortunately, as a notary public, I cannot notarize on behalf of my paperwork. Yes, I know, it sounds like a no-brainer, right? Well, now and then there’s a notary out there that gets “in trouble” for signing their own paperwork. Lack of knowledge does NOT prevent you from getting in trouble with the law. Usually notaries get into the trouble unknowingly. Oftentimes, they are willing participants in company-related notarizations, or notarizations in which they have an invested interest. These situations can cause a conflict of interest, and notaries should be aware of these types of situations.
This evening assignment was a closely related situation. This private document signing was called into our notary line around 7:30pm on February 4, 2016. An hour later, a representative of The Straton Group, LLC. an active South Carolina Notary Public, arrived, with client, to have certain private paperwork signed by said client and notarized. The task was accomplished, and it was good to see a person I’ve worked with in the past use my services once again.
