A California Mobile Notary Public can do notarizations from anywhere within California (no matter where she resides), for people from anywhere around the globe, but the identifying process is strict, and only certain documents can be used. What types of documents may be used by the notary to identify you? View Acceptable ID list here.

(although permissible by law, Kerri does not do notarizations in jails or prisons)
I am not an attorney, therefore, by law, I cannot give legal advice, guidance regarding your transaction or related documents, or interpret the contents of those documents. Doing so would be an unauthorized practice of law, subjecting me to possible fines, loss of my notary public commission, or possibly prison.
County Recording Services
Do you have something that needs to be recorded with the county?
I offer county recording services for Contra Costa County. Charges will include the clerk-recorder fees and travel to county offices. View my Notary Costs page for more details on charges.
What is a mobile notary? What is a notarization?
A notary in California is a public officer, commissioned by the Secretary of State of California to provide notarization services, and must be a person of integrity and pass a background check. Kerri chooses to have an annual background check for her work as a Notary Signing Agent, although the state requires it only every 4 years. It is illegal for a notary to provide legal advice or to prepare or complete documents for a signer.
A notarization is the act of completing a state-approved certificate that means the notary has identified the signer to be who they say they are. The notary does not verify or validate the accuracy of the contents of the document, only the signer.
Mobile Notary Fees for Travel Time
There are no restrictions on what a California Mobile Notary may charge for travel. In addition, it is common to charge extra for late night or very early morning signings (known as a convenience fee). You may view travel fees on the Notary Costs page.
