Notary Public Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | It’s Hump Daaaaaaaaaaaaaay Wednesday

Mid-week is here… Call now to get those documents signed.

Notary Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | This Week is Dimming Down, Don’t be a Clown and Don’t You Frown

An example of a dire situation is when a person is admitted into ICU.  There are tracheotomies, ventilators and other harsh conditions, such as paralysis that sometimes impede a signing when a person has been admitted into this ward.  Hospital signings themselves can be tricky – maneuvering around HIPPA regulations (you cannot ask hospital staff if someone has Sound Mind), navigating the halls and room structure and sequestering family members are all a part of the job.

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

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.
