Notary Issues

Recommended Posts

Did anyone have trouble with their notarized paperwork that they had to send to the resort?

 

I gathered all the paperwork needed and my FI went and got it notarized. The notary used a stamp and not an embosser...which my FI assured me was normal..."no one uses the embosser anymore."

 

I fedex'd everything to Jamaica and got an email saying that they received it but that they couldn't process any of our paperwork because it had to be an official notary and not a copy. I sent back an email saying...It's NOT a copy!!!

 

If I have to re-fedex that paperwork again I am going to be so upset. It wasn't cheap!!!

 

Anyone else have this problem? What did you do?

 

Thanks!!!

Nadine.

Thanks...I'm glad to know that at least someone else has seen the stamp! I don't have a ton of experience with notaries...so I was a little curious about that.

Hopefully they'll email me back and we can figure this out without me having to re-notarize/re-send everything!!!

Yeah...I just did some research and found out that the stamp is perfectly acceptable and normal to use nowadays.

 

Now I just hope they will accept it in Jamaica!!!

 

Thanks yall!

I am a notary and the stamp is definitely normal. But, I do have a thought... if they come back demanding the seal, the notary you used should be able to get what we (in my line of business - real estate) refer to as a "generalized" seal which is just basically a state seal for whichever state you are in. That generalized seal is an actual embossed seal on the document, but it is not specific to any certain notary and doesn't show that notary's name or expiration date as a stamp does, it is just specific to the state. So, if it comes down to it, they could return the originals to you (or you could do new originals) and that notary could use that generalized seal along with their name specific stamp. Hope that helps:) I know how stressfull all of these little details are!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
