Notary Blog: “Did You Know That Notaries in South Carolina Could Marry Couples?”

With prior scheduling, most couples look to their Pastor or a local Minister to marry them. Many of the local Ministers and Pastors are also Notaries Public. They, with proper ordainment, already have the authority to marry these couples. Some couples choose to have a large formal ceremony. Some couples choose to have a small elopement before their larger ceremony. Some, just want the no-frills paperwork signing. If by chance you want the quick route to marriage, or if you just want to legalize the process before your ‘Big Shebang’ Ceremony later, a Notary Public might be your better option.

Notary Blog: Storms May Come and Storms May Go, but the Notary is Always ‘IN’

This post was written in Anderson, South Carolina. While sitting composing this post today, I learned that Anderson was the first city in the south to have electric power lines, hence its nickname, ‘The Electric City’ (and inspiration for our lightning bolt featured image). Michael at (read the full article for location information), thank you for this little tid bit about the City of Anderson!
Thanks to all of the crew members, especially Kendra, my server, for keeping me company while alternate moves had to be made today.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Me to You! ~ Sonita M. Leak

There are couples that are going through rough times, and for those, I say be strong, stay strong, fight for what you know is worth the fight. Lay down those things that are not worth the fight. Sometimes you have to give up things ‘you’ as a person hold dear as a sacrifice for what ‘is’ actually worth it.

Notary Blog: Spur-of-the-Moment Wedding at Starbucks I-85

Many couples call on us to perform the ‘bare-bones’ minimum ceremony, which can be as simple as saying, “I do,” then, ” I do.” It’s usually not that short and sweet, but you get our drift. Some couples want to get the paperwork and legal side of the marriage out of the way without the all frills and thrills ceremony. That is okay with us here at GreenvilleNotary.com.

Notary Blog: What I’ve Learned in the Past Week

I could, in my position as a Notary Public, provide a service that is convenient, quick and professional in manner and conduct my activities as if it were strictly that. However, being the person that I am, I would feel as if I were doing a family a disservice by not upholding the supportive role I hold dear in empathizing and providing condolence when a family feels as though no one understands what they are going through.

Sometimes the monotony of a hospital room or an assisted-living apartment creates a depressing environment, and if I can be that person to cheer them up for that very moment, it was all worth it.

Notary Blog Revisited: In Love and War

Taking care of important paperwork is, in some cases, considered “tedious”, “unimportant” or is simply ignored. I will be the first to tell you that I have seen and heard of hundreds of situations where signers or loved ones are at their wits’ end attempting to figure out how to get a Will or Power of Attorney completed only ‘after’ a traumatic experience has occurred. It’s no fun. My advice? (Read the FULL blog article for more information.)
