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.

Notary Blog: Verification Venture with VerifyI9 Begins Today

As per our normal operations, it has been quite a ride being able to authorize I9 forms on behalf of various companies, whether the I-9 Authorizations have been on paper or else, online. For the first time in GreenvilleNotary.com history, we’ve signed on as a vendor to VerifyI9.  As per their website: “U.S. law requires

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: 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. As it is a given, we are not attorneys, however, as a Notary Public Signing Agent, companies rely on me to complete additional duties that are NOT synonymous with being an attorney. Some question whether we work in the capacity of a….

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.

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: 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

Pro Bono Notary for Mother/Son: Greenville, SC

Sometimes we give a lot of ourselves.  Sometimes we give of ourselves not knowing if we’ll receive anything in return.  Tonight, I experienced that. We are put in the middle of certain situations for a reason.  In one way today, GreenvilleNotary.com was victorious.  Nothing was found wrong with the work performed from a time period

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

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.

Notary Blog: Broker Application in Simpsonville

“Why can’t I just send the documents I need to provide by mail and sign/apply online?” The reason…

Well, there is one main reason for this. Verification of true identity is very important to the companies involved with lending. In today’s technology-driven world, the process of online completion gets easier and easier, buuuuuuuuut…. so does identity theft. How would you feel if your father or mother applied for a home loan in your name? How would you feel if your niece or nephew did?

Notary Blog: Call by 11, There by 12

While visiting their loved one, who made an unexpected trip to the Greenville Memorial Hospital Emergency Room, then up to the Heart Institute Intensive Care Unit, one of a patient’s relatives made a call to GreenvilleNotary.com. While the Notary Public was on the way to take care of another situation, information was provided via text to get to the signers in urgent need of assistance.
