Frequently Asked Questions
Below is information relating to some of the common ways in which notary services are required. Click on one of the links below to jump to that section.
What is Notarisation?
Notarisation is the process whereby a Notary certifies a document. Usually this is done by attaching a notarial certificate to the document. The notarial certificate contains statements of fact or law in relation to the document being certified. Our Notaries often issue certificates in the language of the country where the document being certified is to be used.
What is a signing agent?
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, although we are able sometimes to accommodate walk-in clients, it is preferable to book an appointment in advance in order to ensure a Notary will be available to see you. This also allows us to ensure we have all necessary documents in advance and that the appointment is as brief as possible for you.
Why do I need to bring proof of identity and proof of address?
How much will it cost?
This will depend on the document being certified and exactly what the notary is required to do. Our notaries will be happy to discuss this with you prior to your appointment (please note it will often be necessary to see the document in advance in order to provide an accurate fee estimate).
Where do you provide your services?
We will come to you at a place that is convenient for you. This can be your home or office, a restaurant, or even a nursing home, hospital, or federal, state, or county correctional facility. If you prefer to come to our Wylie, TX office during business hours, this, of course, can also be arranged. Superior Notary Services specializes in providing prompt and convenient attention that lets you focus on your client.
What documents do you notarise?
Do you notarize on weekends?
Yes, we provide San Francisco Area with mobile notary and apostille services on weekend afternoons and early evenings (both Saturday and Sunday) and even most holidays. The San Francisco Area offices are not open on weekends for apostille processing, but we can get things started by having a Red Seal Notary meet you during the weekend or receiving the documents by FedEx on a Saturday.
