christmas tree bay area mobile notary silicon valley san jose campbell travel document acknowledgement stamp2018 is just about done….only a few more weeks and we’ll be watching the crystal ball drop in New York City as we ring in the New Year.

Personally, I’ll be spending the winter break enjoying the Warm Sun and Sand at our Ocean View Condo in Beautiful South Kihei Maui!

Ocean View Condo Kihei Akahi D-412I’ve enjoyed helping so many of you with your document notarization needs. What I love about this business is the diversity both in the people I meet as well as the documents and situations I’m introduced to each day.

Client Diversity

By talking to and meeting with so many of you I get to hear the stories of your lives. But equally fascinating to me is that I get a small glimpse of how our country and our economy as whole is doing. As we move into 2019 the job market and the economy hasn’t been stronger and we’re looking forward to another great year of business prosperity!

Happy New Year 2019

I hope that each one of you will be able to spend time this Holiday Season with friends and family and just take a short break before we jump back into a great new year in 2019!

Can You Provide Me With a Power of Attorney?

Can You Provide Me With a Power of Attorney?power attorney bay area mobile notary signing stamp

As a California Notary Public I am often times asked to help with legal matters. However, since I am not an attorney and can not provide legal advice, I must refer my clients to a competent legal professional.

Power of Attorney Notarized

One document I am presented with most often is a Power of Attorney. While I can not provide forms for my clients or help them make any changes to the document, I am very familiar with various forms and variations of Power of Attorney documents and can provide the needed signature notarization.

As is often the case, this document is needed when a loved one is ill or near death and the family members looking over the signer’s affairs need to gain access to banking, medical or real estate services as an advocate for the Power of Attorney signer.

Just as in notarizing any document it is important that I obtain the correct and valid identification from the document signer. In most cases that means the signing party would provide a valid state issued Drivers License, ID card or a federally issued Passport. However, when the signer is elderly, often times they have relinquished their Drivers License and don’t have a valid ID card or Passport.

What to do?

If a signer does NOT have the proper valid legal identification, there is another option. The signer may present to me, the notary public, two witnesses who can vouch for the identity of the signer. The two witnesses must have valid Identification cards themselves and they MAY NOT be mentioned in the document being signed, or have anything to gain by it’s signing.

A Recent Clientfamily signs power attorney document mobile ntoary bay

I recently helped a family who’s father did not have a valid Identification card. However, he was able to present two witnesses who could vouch for his identity. When choosing witnesses in this situation, it is best to avoid using family members as they may be able to be linked to benefiting from the signing of the Power of Attorney document. I often recommend that my clients find neighbors or co-workers who have known the signer for several years and who feel comfortable vouching for the identity of the party being notarized.

Before submitting your Form VS-111, as the applicant  you’ll need to have  your signature notarized by a California Notary Public. The time to fill out the form should only be about 5-10 minutes and you can easily have the form notarized by a mobile or traveling notary such as Bay Area Mobile Notary or any walk-in notary location. The State of California Department of Public Health has already included the necessary notary public verbiage on the document so completing the form is very straightforward.
