Need A Mobile Notary?

BlogMobileNotaryThe number one reason why people use a mobile notary public is convenience. Most people that contact me for mobile notary services need me to travel to them or meet them after work. Yes, banks do offer notary public services, but between “banking” hours. I offer services “after” normal business hours, weekends and holidays. Flexible appointments and last minute requests can be accommodated as well.

I’ve completed general notary work at hospitals, doctor offices, Starbucks, the supermarket, a skating rink and even a nightclub! I come to you! Home, office or any location that is suitable for your needs.

Contact @AfterHoursVA for your notary public needs today! Serving Richmond, Virginia and surrounding counties. $5 per notarized signature and $35 travel fee for Richmond City, Chesterfield County and Henrico County.

What is an E-Notary?

An eNotary is a Notary Public who notarizes documents electronically.

What is electronic notarization (e-notarization)?

Electronic notarization is a process whereby a notary affixes and electronic notary signature and seal information to an electronic document (such as a PDF or Word document).  Once affixed to the electronic document, the document is rendered tamper evident such that unauthorized attempts to alter the document will be evident to relying parties.  The Electronic Notary also must keep an electronic register of each act performed.

What is the difference between an electronic notarization and current pen and paper notarization?

The only real difference is the tool used to perform the notarial act. In a traditional paper notarization, a pen and a rubber stamp are the tools of the notary’s trade.  For an electronic notarization, the notary must use a computer and appropriate computer software and/or hardware.

Generally speaking all other steps and procedures of notarization remain the same.  The signer appears before the notary to request a notarization, and the notary identifies the signer, completes a notarial certificate and affixes the electronic notary signature and seal.

While the signer must still appear personally before an Electronic Notary, beginning July 1, 2012, an approved Virginia Electronic Notary may perform acts online using audio-video conference technology.
