Clients are always updated with the names and cell phone numbers of the notary public assigned and coming out to their scheduled appointment.


 HOW DO I PAY FOR YOUR SERVICES?

      CPNS™ does have a pre-payment policy, prior to meeting with the signer. This is to ensure that our Notaries Public and Notary Signing Agents are not only made available for paying clients', but will ensure those that book with us, actually show up to their scheduled appointments. There are certain circumstances that a CPNS™ Notary Public will accept payment at the time of the notarization, but these only include being asked to notarize documents not previously scheduled by a client.

 HOW LONG WILL CNS NOTARY WAIT FOR ME IF I AM RUNNING LATE FOR OUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT?

       Generally, our Notaries Public or Notary Signing Agents, will wait at maximum of .15 minutes during which they will call the client as a courtesy advising of their arrival at the agreed upon location, and advise when they will leave unless otherwise agreed to stay beyond the 15 minutes. Both CPNS™ staff and our clients shall perform professionally at all times, and if running late to a scheduled appointment, either are expected to send a courtesy text or phone call to the signing party.

      However, should client fail to show up to scheduled appointment (NO SHOW) or fail to reschedule the appointment with the Notary Public, Notary Signing Agent or CPNS™ staff, any and all pre-payments made for services, will be deemed forfeit by the client. This is to cover the travel expenses of the dispatched Notary Public or Notary Signing Agent.

       No. Per IL law, IL notaries CAN NOT CERTIFY any documents, including US birth, marriage, death or school transcripts. However, we can notarize your signature on a Copy Certification By Document Custodian Form. Call us for more information.
