Notary Fees

 
The State of Florida allows notaries to charge $10.00 for each signature they notarize. In addition to this, however, there are frequently other charges that cause the fee incur to be higher. Here are some examples of things that cause the fee to increase:

1. Except for your signature, the document should be fully completed before arrival. There is a time charge if we have to wait for you to fill in the document or if you ask our assistance in filling in the document for you.
2. Although we cannot provide any legal advice, there are sometimes occasions when we are asked to provide a general explanation of part or all of a document. Since that is not part of the notarization process, there is a time charge for that as well.
3. Travel to get to you to provide the notarization, there will be a travel charge. If we travel to the location and we are not able to provide the service the travel fees will still be due. Please note the when traveling to the hospital if the patient is not fully aware we will not be able to notarize the document.

There may be other activities or issues that require an extra charge as well but the above are representative of the reasons why additional charges exist.
