A Mobile Notary is a Notary Public that travels to a designated location to fulfill his or her notarial duties including but not limited to administering oaths and affirmations, taking affidavits and statutory declarations, witnessing and authenticating the execution of certain classes of documents, taking acknowledgments of deeds and other conveyances, protesting notes and bills of exchange, providing notice of foreign drafts, preparing marine or ship’s protests in cases of damage, providing exemplifications and notarial copies, and performing certain other official acts depending on the jurisdiction. A Mobile Notary typically charges a travel fee in addition to the standard fee for their notarial acts. The travel fee is charged in order to compensate the Mobile Notary for their time, travel expenses and nuances including but not limited to gas, tolls, and parking.

A Notary Public is a person of proven integrity appointed by the state government to serve the public as an impartial witness in taking acknowledgements, administering oath and affirmations, and performing other acts authorized by law. It is important to remember that a Mobile Notary is not licensed to practice law, prepare documents or provide any legal counsel.
To put it simply a Notary Public’s main purpose is to deter fraud. As an impartial witness, the Notary ensures that the signers of documents are who they say they are and not impostors. The Notary also makes sure that signers have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly.
