Notary Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | Happy National Bosses’ Day – For Bosses with Employees and Those Without

Every National Bosses’ Day is a special day for me.  It is a day where I can celebrate being my own Boss to both my Notary Service and Wedding Officiant businesses.  When I began my journey, there were so many naysayers.  I had people that I thought were in my corner saying that I needed

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.

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

Notary Public Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | When am I Supposed to Have My Title Signature Notarized? A Helpful Tidbit

I see Sellers and Buyers of vehicles from week to week, from small compact cars to boat motors, handling interstate transactions, mostly. People call with questions.

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.

This post was written in Anderson, South Carolina.

Notary Blog: Two New Residents at Haywood Mall

Often, I receive emails from different people regarding what we CAN and CANNOT do as Notaries Public here in South Carolina.

Some question whether we work in the capacity of a….

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.

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.
