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.

“My story all of this hit suddenly. One day I’m going to the fair with my daughter, early the next morning I’m in the hospital because i fell out of bed hit my head. The doctors find a massive brain tumor.

This morning, I listened to Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers’ ‘For Every Mountain’ and it just encouraged me even more to stay on the path and to not be discouraged. Being a Notary Public for the past 7 years has brought ‘many wonderful blessings’, as the song says. It has been an honor

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.

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

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: 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.

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.

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?
