It's so hard to get consistent answers out of them! This is the response that Chandlyn sent on Feb 17:
I'm sorry that I still have not sent you our notarized paperwork - I have a friend/lawyer that is going to noratize them for us, but I haven't been able to get in to see him yet - otherwise we will have to pay to get it done. Do you need it right away (like before next week)? It can be sent to us by next week If so I'll just pay to have someone else do it. Also, does it have to be signed by a notary, or can it be signed by a commissioner of oaths?It has to be signed by a Notary.
It also had those requirements on the info sheet that Beverly sent out with the package prices.....
