Importance of a Traveling Notary

Alstate Process Service provides a wide array of process services, including a traveling notary. A traveling notary is also referred to as a mobile notary and is simply someone who travels to meet clients in-person, instead of having them come to you. A notary public is an official of integrity appointed by state government and serves the public as an impartial witness in the signing of important documents. These official acts are the called notarization and is necessary to deter fraud and establish that the signer knows what document they are signing and that they are a willing participant in the transaction at hand. Typically, a notary will ask to see a current ID that has a photo, physical description and signature. A driver's license or a passport are both acceptable forms of identification, as well as a U.S. military ID, a permanent resident / green card, or a state-issued identification card.

The fact a traveling notary comes to you overall makes the hassle of getting something notarized simpler and more convenient, but they may be more expensive. This is due to the fact that they are meeting with you in-person and thus must make an appointment to meet at a specified time and place. You also may be required to pay for their travel time, as well as expenses.

Traveling notaries are typically used as part of the mortgage closing process, where multiple parties' signatures are required. Trusts, POA's (Power of Attorney).and healthcare documents are also popular fields where a notary is used.
