Notary Blog: A Sunday Wedding and Three Notarizations | GreenvilleNotary.com

The weekend is a time to enjoy spending quality time with family, friends and loved ones.  What happens when you run a business and have to include serving customers? You make it work.  The first customers of the day were a young Homestead at Hartness Community couple who wanted to get married without all the

Forget Basketball, March is Total NOTARY MADNESS here at GreenvilleNotary.com

Over the past week, I’ve traveled to Walhalla, Seneca and even to Gaffney, South Carolina for assignments ranging from simple witnessing (today, March 14, 2017) to more complicated acknowledgment work (evening of Saturday, March 11, 2017). Forget March Madness according to basketball. This month has really been a busy start out of the gate and

Notary Blog: Three-in-One at Zaxby’s | Greenville County Square

Property Documents, Notary Application and a Limited Power of Attorney. What a whirlwind! While one signing was scheduled at the Zaxby’s located at 824 S. Church Street, Greenville, SC 29601, the second signing was scheduled for another location near White Horse Road earlier in the morning. The last signing, well, the last signing was a pop-up from out of the blue.

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: It’s Valentine’s Day and We’re In Love!

Although February 14, 2017 is all booked up for weddings, it’s not too late to get in there for the year 2017. I am available for Impromptu On-the-Spot Wedding and Marriage Ceremonies (although prior planning prevents poor performance) all the way to Formal Ceremonies. Also, never discount other holidays or occasions for your Marriage Ceremony.

Notary Look-Back: November 2015 Holiday Grief Seminar

My initial intention in attending the seminar was to gain some insight into what clients and families of the clients I served dealt with on a daily basis with the grief over the loss of a loved one.  Not once in the days leading up to the seminar did I think, “How would this seminar relate to my

Notary Blog: Service in Easley for PRG Staffing

There are many companies all over the country that hire Notaries Public to perform various functions, not exclusive to notarizing signatures on paperwork. Companies look at Notaries as professionals when it comes to providing document services and making sure documents are signed correctly. That’s not to say that a Notary will not mess up.

See the hours posted below. BUT FIRST….

Notary Blog: OOS-Initiated Last Will and Testament

This execution occurred on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 18, 2016 near the Atrium Elevators of Greenville Memorial Hospital. The signing needed the assistance of two witnesses, none of which could be the Notary Public, as the signing was for a document that would be traveling Interstate and required the viewing of

Notary Blog: Online I9 at Greenville Memorial

oday’s transaction was on behalf of Kelly Services, yes the same Kelly Services that provides temporary placements for workers. Although there is a local Kelly Services office (located off of Garlington Road right here in Greenville), this work order arrived directly from Kelly Services Headquarters in Troy Michigan. In total, the transaction was…

Notary Blog: In Memory of Martin Luther King, Jr.

On this day of remembrance of everything that Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for in the fight for equality, we are constantly reminded of the progress we’ve made as a nation.  With progress have come shortcomings and hindrances, however, our outlook must remain a positive one. Today, take a moment of silence to remember those

Notary Blog: “Oh No! Another Uh-Oh!”

A signing that was set for a rehabilitation facility located on Highway 14 in Simpsonville, South Carolina did not occur.  It seems like we’ve had more and more occurrences where we are set to see patients within facilities, however, the transaction of signing paperwork does not occur because of one of many reasons. If you

Need SC Notary Law? Reference SCSOS.com

I get posed the questions a lot, “How do I become a Notary Public?” Also, “How do I know what we’re doing today is a valid notarial act?” It’s easy to say in reply, “Consult your attorney.” Buuuuuut, did you know that there is a COMPLETE State of South Carolina Notary Public Manual easily accessible by visiting

Twice Notary Shy (GMH)

A local resident we’ve seen in previous weeks recently inquired about becoming a Notary Public. Today, or should I say, tonight, her application was SIGNED, SEALED, and will soon be delivered via mail.

The second signing, which occurred a few minutes later, was for a private POA matter.

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 Service Available at ALL POINTS

People that know about our service well know that the Notary Public will be available during ALL hours.  This includes, but is not limited to, THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR’S DAY, EASTER, etc. What does that mean for you?  It means that when you have that family member who needs emergency Notary Service at 2 a.m.,

Notary Blog: Second Visit to the Haven

A very complex, private assignment was carried out at this location on the afternoon of Friday, December 23, 2016. The assignment was assisted by Antron Holden, Sr., a student and mentee of GreenvilleNotary.com Owner Sonita M. Leak.

Merry Christmas from the Notary and Family

We want to reach out to our friends, family members, customers and clients of GreenvilleNotary.com to pray you all a Merry Christmas. My family would not be the family we are without LOVE and lots of PRAYER, (yes, sometimes we all get on each other’s nerves), but what is a ‘perfect’ family.  I dedicate this

Notary Blog: Repeat Signer at Hughes

Notary on the road and you need something notarized? Not a problem. Well, usually. A signing occurred close to Noon on Monday, December 19, 2016. The signer was a Repeat Customer of GreenvilleNotary.com and was about to leave his location of the Hughes Main Library by Noon. If he missed his chance to get the document signed, the result would have been absolutely no good.

Notary Blog: The Tale of Two Vehicles

Although we at GreenvilleNotary.com are not attorneys, it is HIGHLY IMPORTANT to make sure you’ve covered your bases when conducting Interstate (state-to-state) transactions. Because North Carolina vehicle registration and titling facilities require notarization of the seller’s signature, it’s best that if you are conducting any type of interstate deal, that you have the signature of the seller notarized before the title leaves their hands.

Notary Blog: 102-Page Buyers’ Package in 29601

Just so you know, most bank notaries and even choice other notaries in public offices that have not completed Signing Agent training for out-of-state documents are not aware of some of the Interstate laws; they may not complete a signing correctly. You can be assured that here at GreenvilleNotary.com, we have many years of training to ensure that the entire document process is taken care of.
