Wallace Mobile Notary provides an important trust service in witnessing the execution of legal and commercial documents. I verify the identity of the signing party, witness the signature and vouch for their authenticity. I offer confidential, personalized notary public services in your home, office, coffee shop or care facility. You chose the time and location most convenient to you!
Please note: if you are hiring a mobile notary public, you are paying an additional fee for the convenience of mobile service to your location. This fee can change based on distance and time of day. If you require service during peak traffic times or after 8:00pm, the travel fee can be increased between $10 and $50 depending on the hour.
I perform a wide variety of notarizations including (but not limited to) the following:
The State of California has determined the fees for Notary Services as $15.00 (maximum) per signature notarized.
Standard Signing… $15 per signature.
Standard Travel Fee, (7am to 8pm; may vary depending on traffic, distance, etc.)… $30
Off Hours Travel Fee varies depending on time of day/night, distance, traffic, etc. Call for more information.

Airport Emergency Notarization: $75.00 travel fee + parking + $15.00 per signature. *Note: Travel Fee may increase depending on time of day, traffic, etc.
Excessive Waiting Times: $30.00 per hour after the first 20 minutes.
Ask about discounts for Senior Citizens, active military, first responders, and more! American Vets are ALWAYS FREE!
Travel Fee is still due upon arrival if signing does not occur, for any reason. Travel Fee is still due and payable if you fail to cancel 1 hour or less prior to appointment time.
For your convenience, I accept cash and process credit card payments on site, via PayPal. Personal checks only accepted through PayPal.
All transactions other than cash subject to additional 3% service fee.
Preparing For Your Appointment
The primary function of a Notary Public is to examine identification, to assure that you are the person listed on the document, and to act as an impartial witness when you sign your documents. This is to deter fraudulent activity.
Options for ID
These should be unexpired or if expired, issued within 5 years prior to the expiration date:
State I.D. card
City State or Federal government issued ID card
Tribal ID card
If it is impossible for you to produce the I.D. noted above, call me to discuss your options: 310-933-9474.
*Note: If you have an elderly parent, they often need to get documents notarized. Seniors can apply for a “free” senior ID card (62 years and older) often by mail. You can review your options and find the CA DMV application forms here.
Review Your Documents for Accuracy
Please be sure your document is fully completed. If sections are not applicable, please indicate that on the document. It is a violation of California law for a Notary Public to notarize an incomplete document. This law is to protect the signer from someone fraudulently entering additional information on your document after it is out of your possession. Please wait to sign your document until your appointment.
Although I receive many calls asking me to provide legal forms; however, according to the Secretary of State, this is considered an illegal practice of law. Please consult an attorney for the best option for you.
Types of Notarial Acts:
The individual or company that is requesting that your signature be notarized will usually determine which notarial act is used. The Notary Public may provide an acknowledgement or jurat, but cannot choose which act you should use.
If your document does not have notarial verbiage attached, I recommend checking with the custodian of the document for their preference.
Sworn statement and requires an oath or affirmation. This notarial act, must be signed in front of the Notary under oath of affirmation.
It’s always best to sign in Notary’s presence, although the document can be signed prior to the appointment and acknowledged to the Notary Public that it is your signature on the document. The signer is still required to appear before the Notary and provide CA state approved identification before the document can be notarized.
Again, it is always best to sign in the front of the Notary.
