I am looking for a reliable, friendly, flexible and MOBILE notary who would be willing
to travel to my home office in Kensington. I would love to support my local notary so
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I highly recommend Velocity Mobile Notary. Velocity Mobile Notary is a
very reliable and friendly mobile notary. They go out of their way to
make it convenient for you. The number is 510-525-4668.
We are at the beginning of the International Adoption process. There are
MANY documents that need to be notarized. We are trying to find a way to
avoid the $10-$12 per signature fee. I would appreciate any
recommendations/ideas and/or names of adoption-friendly notaries who would
likely give a 'bulk discount.'
Thanks so much.
Now that we are complete with our adoption process, I saw on one
of the local adoptive parents' boards that AAA gives a discounted
rate on notary services. I couldn't confirm this on their
website, but it's worth checking.
If you are looking for a traveling notary, we used Olin Covington
(http://www.notaryto-go.com/) and he was very reasonable (I think
his rates depend where you are, as he is out of the Tri-Valley area).
My one other bit of advice is to make sure whichever notary you
use really knows what they are doing. I made the mistake for one
of my documents to use a ''friend of a friend'' at work for free
who was a licensed notary but didn't do it all the time. What do
you know -- it was done wrong and got rejected.
Good luck with the ''paper chase!''
We are in the process of putting the dossier together for our
China Adoption. Our first step is to have many documents
notarized. Do you know of any notary public that is
knowledgeable with notarizing documents for international
adoption? Possibly a discount for adoption documents or multiple
signatures? The notary's seal will have to be certified by the
Secretary of State (which is our second step). Thank you!
When we did paperwork for our international adoption, we did not
find a notary that would give us a discount. I do want to give
you a heads up though about Alameda County notaries. I found this
out the hard way. When you take all the notarized documents to
the Secretary of State's office in Sacramento, if there are any
questions about the notary's signature, Alameda County is the
only county that will not give the Secretary of State's office
information over the phone. So, I ended up waiting for half a day
for them to find the information and fax it to the Secretary of
State's office. If I ever have to do this again, I would go to a
notary in a different county!
Aardvark Notary is very helpful and mistake free. They always
have a notary on staff, which is rare, and they have a mobile
service for an extra fee. They are located on Telegraph at
45th. One of their notaries was adopted in the 60's; he is a
great guy. aardvarknotary.com or 510.6016133
Does anyone know of a notary who can come to your home in the
evening? I need someone who could come after 6:30 when my husband
is home from work.
Thanks for any help...
A friend of mine, Kate Diaz-Moreira will travel to you to notarize documents.

She is a notary and makes evening house calls. I don't know where
you live so I don't know if she will travel that far, but it
doesn't hurt to ask.
