Does anyone know the legalities of notarizing documents? I have a document that needs to be notarized which must be signed by both my mom and I; it is to collect money the State of Illinois found undeclared that is legally mine. Do both people need to be present with the notary? How can I do this when my mom is confined to a wheelchair in a nursing home, hasn't ever left the nursing home, and I'm doubtful, too, that she has the ability to sign her name. Help!
Does the nursing home have anyone on staff who can notarize documents?
As far as notaries in a nursing home validating identity for a resident, I don’t think that would be conflict of interest. But I could be wrong. Many nursing homes have employees that act as a Notary who is bound to a standard listed in their certification and position requirements. A poster above listed conditions directly from her rule book.
