Please be advised, I have completed the online Notary Public seminar and know trying to obtain an Attorney’s signature to complete my application and mail to the State Govenor’s office. I have made many attempts to seek an Attorney signature only to come up empty. Any suggestions ???????
Spen, what state are you in?
Thank you for your prompt response. I am living in Massachusetts. Any help is greatly appreciated.
I asked where you were so I could look at your application..and yes I see that one of your references has to be a member of the bar – wow!!
Do you have a personal attorney who would sign for you? Do your parents or siblings? Please note they are signing that they know you.
My only suggest is if you don’t have an attorney and neither does anyone in your family, call the Governor’s office and see what they suggest in this instance…I’m sure this has come up before…
Try looking up your state senators and representatives online, and see if any of them are lawyers. Also, keep in mind that Massachusetts has an executive order in place that pretty much prevents notaries from doing remote loan closings; one of the Massachusetts bar associations has filed some law suits against organizations (title companies?) that wanted to do this. So if the lawyer asks why you want to be a notary, have a good answer ready.
(No, I’m not a Massachusetts notary, I’m from over the border in Vermont.)
i am taking my notary test in the morning. Any advice?
