Notary Public Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | What Does the Weekend Really Mean to You?

If I spent every waking hour of the day working and not getting my much needed rest, I would be a ball of nerves, tired all the time and just plain unhealthy. There’s just no way I could let that happen dealing with multiple children and multiple responsibilities. My advice for the day?

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 Blog: Signing in Seneca, SC

A signing for a 45-page document occurred at the Seneca Wal-Mart McDonald’s restaurant for a local resident.  The signing took place on the evening of Tuesday, December 6, 2016.

Notary Blog: Not One, but Two Local Business Owners!

Notary service on behalf of local residents is our game. However, considering that we just experienced Shop Small Saturday, local notary service on behalf of two local business owners is definitely a pleasure!

Sonita M. Leak’s Notary Blog: Breakfast at the Bank of America at Haywood and Pelham

Well, at least it was early enough to do that.

The signer originally called the night before

Sonita M. Leak’s Notary Blog: Two Part Signing Near Quiktrip of Rutherford Road | Greenville, South Carolina

A Notary assignment located behind the QuikTrip of Rutherford Road here in Greenville, South Carolina last year was not fully complete without a visit of convenience.

Notary Blog: Signing at Anderson Mall for Two Travelers

Meeting of the minds are great, especially when you can find a notary public that works on the weekend.

Notary Blog: Footing it to OJ’s Diner

Two signers that literally sought out after a notary public upon completion of work and after-school activities met with GreenvilleNotary.com Owner Sonita M. Leak at Panera Bread, 708 Haywood Road, Greenville, SC 29607. Needing two documents signed and notarized quickly after hours shouldn’t be a hassle.  If there is no additional travel for the notary involved, it

Notary Blog: 3 Birds with One Stone @ GMH

Today was as good a day as any for a resident of Seneca, South Carolina hospitalized at Greenville Memorial Hospital to draw up and sign documents for their relative to handle their private affairs, as the situation being dealt with was serious. This is the first of two signings that occurred at Greenville Memorial Hospital today. The second, well, the

Notary Blog: Odd-Hour Acknowledgment at Span America

We received a call from a slightly stressed 7 – 5:30 worker who needed a Notary Public that would be convenient for a document that needed to be completed by, not just her, but also another local Greenville, South Carolina party. The thing is, both of their signatures required notarization. So what does our local

Notary Blog: There’s Nothing Wrong with an Explanation

Some are unclear of the difference between a notary providing information only for informational purposes and a notary telling a signer what to do or how to act.  Take this example: I sign on many documents party to oversight transactions dealing with loan applications and closing paperwork on behalf of out-of-state property.  In course-of-action, I

Notary for Notary Public Application | Mauldin, SC

I can’t say much here because the signing was of a discreet nature, however, a local Mauldin, South Carolina resident who deals with documents needing notarization regularly was in need of a notary public to sign off on the Notary Application Renewal Form.

Notary for Online I-9 Auth | Carolina Ale House

“A very extensive Online I-9 Authorization signing was re-routed from one location to another.” Tonight’s signing occurred on the evening of March 23, 2016 at Carolina Ale House instead of a popular Downtown Greenvillebookstore.

What Do You Do When the Mobile Notary Needs a Mobile Notary?

So that is a valid question that arises from time to time…  Can a notary public notarize their own signature?  Not ever, for any reason, can a notary public EVER notarize their own signature.  Relatives’ signatures are off the market for most documents, however, there are some transactions where a family member may be able
