At some point throughout our lives most of us will require the services of a Notary Public. When purchasing a home, executing a power of attorney, creating a Will, identity verification, and in many other circumstances, we will need a Notary Public to place their seal upon important documents and transactions.
A mobile Notary Public will assist their clients in many settings, meeting them at their homes, business's, medical facilities, financial institutions or wherever they are needed. A Notary Public serves the private sector, as well as commercial and government entities.
In the State of Florida a Notary Public is required to complete a mandatory three-hour education course administered by an approved educator. Florida state law also requires that a notary public post bond in the amount of $7,500.00. A bond is required in order to compensate an individual harmed as a result of a breach of duty by the notary. Applications are submitted and processed through an authorized bonding agency. Florida is one of three states (Maine and South Carolina are the others) where a notary public can also perform a marriage ceremony.
Note: A notary public is NOT an attorney, and cannot give legal advice under any circumstance. If you need legal advice please contact an attorney.
