Looking for answers to your pressing notary questions? Look no farther than our Notary FAQ.

Sunshine Signing Connection will help you. If you don’t see the answer to your question below, contact us and one of our notarization experts will be able to assist you.

We perform thousands of notarizations every month, so you can ask us any question, as you won’t be the first one to need our specific expertise in the field.

Why do I need a notary?

To sign many legal documents, a notary is required to make the document official. They verify your identity and act as a witness as you sign your document.

It is a safety net to ensure that there is no deceit when signing legal documents, and that you can feel safe that your document is legitimate.

Not only businesses need notaries.  We do work with title companies and lenders, as well as other types of real estate, structured settlements, among others.

But, sometimes individuals need notaries, too.

How long does it take to get a notary?

We can have a mobile notary at your location in under 4 hours. In many cases, the time is much shorter. We also have online notaries available 24/7.

However, it’s always a good idea to find a notary as soon as you are ready for signatures.

How do notaries fit into marriage?

Certain states require a notary to validate a marriage license. Laws regarding this do vary.

This is an easy guide to find out which states are notary marital states.

What are the requirements for witnesses in my state?

While most states do not require a witness be present for a document signing, there are some that do.

To alleviate some of the confusion we have compiled a list of Notary Witness States for you to read.

How do notaries fit into business?

It’s always a good idea to have a notary present for signing contracts or business agreements. This creates a legal barrier for both parties to make sure that the documents are legal and binding.

But, don’t limit yourself. Even if you focus on remote signings, you will still need both mobile notaries, as well as online ones, , so you need to do business with a company that specializes in both.

What is Mobile Notary?

A mobile notary does not have to work out of an office. They come to you, whether it be at your business, a coffee shop or restaurant, your home or other location.

They make it easier for both you and the other party to arrange the signing that needs to be performed. This saves you time, money and effort.

Sunshine Signing has a network of over 40,000 notaries nationwide that are ready to service your signing. They are in all fifty states, even in rural areas.

They make it easy for both businesses and individuals to schedule and get any legal document that needs to be notarized. For individuals, this can even mean notarizing documents between you and your neighbor for any work that needs to be done on or near property lines.

They can also perform any private loans between family members or any other document that you want to feel secure with.

What is an Online Notary?

With the quickly changing landscape, technology has improved to the point that an online notary can perform signings over the internet.

As long as you have the technology needed, like a computer, a webcam and a scanner, they can verify and ensure that your signing is legitimate.

In technical terms online notaries perform what are known as Remote Online Notarizations.

Laws regarding online notaries are still evolving and vary by state. If you have any questions about how to use an online notary in your state, we encourage you to call us at (727) 817-0000 and one of our notarization specialists will be more than happy to assist you.
