Mentally Incapacitated Persons
The law prohibits a notary from notarizing the signature of a person known to the Notary as having been adjudicated mentally incapacitated by a court of competent jurisdiction if that notarization pertains to a right that has been removed. These rights refer to such things as the right to vote, to marry, to execute conveyances of real property, etc. Mobile Notary Tampa will not book services for the aforementioned individual(s), and Notary will not notarize any document if Notary is unable to determine with reasonable certainty that person(s) signing document(s) to be notarized is/are willing and competent to execute the document.

In the case of a blind signer, the law requires a notary to read any document to the signer before the notarization. Please keep this in mind when booking Notary services, and allow for additional time.
Non-English Speaking Signers
In the case of a signer who does not understand English, there must be an interpreter to translate documents to be signed into a language the signer understands. Securing an interpreter is the responsibility of the signer.
