Latanya B.


Real estate is all about timing and I was in a time crunch for some loan docs to get signed to close a deal on a piece of property. Believe it or not my client and I needed this done at 3am in the morning. SHANNON TO THE RESCUE! We were able to get things done and get into escrow next day. Totally pleased with Shannon’s work.


Gustavo H.


I do not do remodel work or build ADU’s anymore without the scope of work and the contract being notarized from the customer. I learned the hard way that this is necessary. Shannon and his assistant handles all my contracts for me now. Great team.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an acceptable ID?

This question clearly takes the top spot.

One of the key reasons it comes up so often is that us Notaries are confronted with a growing array of identity cards. Consider that every state and U.S. territory issues driver’s licenses and ID cards. On top of that, there are inmate IDs, tribal IDs and identity cards issued by federal government agencies. Then there are the identity cards and passports issued by every country in the world. Given the mobile nature of our business and the fact that there are 43 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S., there’s a good chance will encounter an unfamiliar ID.

The valid Photo Identification Cards that we accept are:

  1. California driver’s license or nondriver’s ID. (valid & unexpired)

  2. U.S. passport or passport card. (valid & unexpired)

  3. An inmate identification card issued by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

  4. Driver’s license or official nondriver’s ID issued by a U.S. state.

  5. Canadian or Mexican driver’s license issued by an appropriate public agency.

  6. U.S. military ID.

  7. Valid foreign passport.

  8. Employee ID issued by an agency or office of the state of California.

  9. Employee ID issued by a California city, county, or city and county.

  10. ID card issued by a federally-recognized tribal government.

  11. Valid consular identification document issued by a consulate.

  12. Two Credible Witnesses with a valid ID that can confirm they personally know you.

What kind of notarization do I need?

Many clients come to us and simply say, “I need this notarized.

They have no idea that there are different notarial acts. Before we ask you "what type of notarization you want?", we will quickly peruse the document to see if it includes notarial wording, which is generally found after the signature line.

If it does, we will look it over to see what it is asking us to do.

For an acknowledgment, it will generally have some variation of “acknowledged before me.

Jurat wording typically will include a version of “subscribed and sworn” language.

If we recognize the wording and it meets the requirements for the state of California, we will proceed. If the wording is not clear, or the document doesn’t contain a notarial certificate, we will have to ask you what type of notarization document is needed.

Customers will often then ask us what to do. We will describe to you what an acknowledgment is and what a jurat is, but we will never recommend or suggest which one should be used. That would be an unauthorized practice of law.

Do all pages of my document need to be notarized?

We notarize signatures on documents, not pages on documents.

A particular page or pages might have notary certificates within a document. Or, a certificate could be stapled to the back of a document. Ideally that certificate should identify the corresponding document.

We charge PER SIGNATURE. So if your document requires us to notarize your signature on multiple pages, you will be billed for each of those notarization acts.

What type of documents will you NOT notarize?

  1. If a document has a white-out on it, then we will refuse to notarize it because we do not understand the complete contents.

  2. If the signer is not present or the document is incomplete.

  3. If the signer cannot understand the document’s contents, then we cannot notarize the document.

  4. If the signer cannot provide an adequate identification clause.

  5. If the signer is a minor, or we believe a person has been coerced into signing.

  6. Wills and birth/death certificates are not notarized.

Questions we will ask you before we book your signing...

  1. Will everyone who needs their signature notarized be present?

  2. Do you have in your possession all necessary documents ready for the notarization?

  3. Do all signers have acceptable ID? What type does each person have?

  4. Do you agree to all our payment terms for extras? (including travel fees and /or any additional fees)
