A mobile notary is a notary public who is able to travel to different locations to notarize documents. In most states, a notary public is an official appointed by the government to serve as an unbiased witness to the signing of important documents. Mobile notaries are able to bring the services of a notary public to the convenience of the customer, rather than requiring the customer to travel to a specific location.
Mobile notaries are often used in situations where a person is unable to physically go to a notary’s office, such as when they are in a hospital, nursing home, or prison, or when they live in a remote location. Mobile notaries can also be useful in emergency situations or when a document needs to be notarized on short notice.
To become a mobile notary, an individual must first become a notary public in their state of residence. This typically involves completing a notary training course, passing a background check, and obtaining a bond or insurance. Mobile notaries may also need to purchase a seal or stamp to use when notarizing documents.
If you need to have a document notarized and are unable to go to a notary’s office, you can search online directories or local classifieds for mobile notaries in your area. You may also be able to find a mobile notary through a professional organization such as the National Notary Association (NNA) or the American Association of Notaries (AAN).
