Tips from Meridian Mobile Notary

October 18, 2012


Today I notarized a Power of Attorney for an elderly client in a nursing facility. She needed to transfer the responsibility of selling her home to her daughter while she convalesced. In their case, as in so many, she didn't have any acceptable form of identification and her relatives lived in another state, so she had no one available to act as credible witnesses.

We were still able to get her document notarized, but it's a good reminder to anyone who is getting up in years, as well as children of older parents, to keep at least one form of qualifying I.D.(State ID, Passport or Drivers License) current. In the event that documents need to be signed on short notice, keeping identification current can make a potentially stressful situation flow much more smoothly.
