Vadim was the absolute best! VIP service indeed! As many people know buying a home can be a stressful process with endless amounts of paperwork so when you can simplify any part of the process it feels as if you’ve been thrown a life raft! We called at the last min and Vadim fit us into his schedule and even drove all the way across town in rush hour traffic to assist. We had a bit complicated situation with complex loan documents and Vadim assisted us patiently all with a smile on his face! Highly recommend him for any notary needs!

A notary public is an individual commissioned by the Secretary of State to perform a notarial act and is a considered a “public ministerial officer” who is an impartial agent of the state commissioned to witness notarial writings and signatures. One of the main responsibilities of a public notary is to confirm the identity of the signer of a document through personal knowledge, a credible witness and / or identification card or papers. Also, notaries public ensure the signer is under his/her own free will, and there to witness the actual signing. The overall purpose of the notary public is fraud prevention in document signatures and certification.
Notarizing a document or signature entails a few similar details, but will depend on your specific notarization act. For the most widely performed notary public services, you will bring the documents to be notarized to the notary (or a mobile notary will travel to you) and the commissioned public notary will: Verify the identity of the signers, confirm that the signers understand what they are signing / signing under their own free will, witness the signature(s), log the notarization act in the notary journal book; and complete a notarial certificate. In some cases, an oath or affirmation is required.
An individual commissioned by the state is can notarize signatures and documents and perform notarizing acts as set forth by the secretary of state of their respective state.
An Apostille is a certification by the office of the Secretary of State or the State Department of the United States that the signature on the document in question is valid or that the notary on the non-governmental document is valid. This Apostille certificate is then presented in conjunction with the document in question to be used in another Hague Convention country.
Apostille services help individuals and companies obtain the proper authorization certificates (Apostille) from the Secretary of State. Apostille services in Los Angeles such as ours obtain the required documents from clients, take them to the California Secretary of State office, wait for however long it takes on a walk-in basis to get the Apostille.
Authentication requests can be presented in person to the Sacramento (also by mail) or Los Angeles office locations for California Apostille services. For in-person Apostille requests, no appointment is necessary and customers are served on a “first come first serve” basis.
