 HOW LONG WILL CPNS© 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 act courteous and professionally at all times, and either is running late to a scheduled appointment, are expected to send a courtesy text or phone call to the each other. 

  • 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, pre-payments for these services will be deemed forfeit by the client.

CAN AN ILLINOIS NOTARY PUBLIC CERTIFY ORIGINAL BIRTH, MARRIAGE OR DEATH CERTIFICATES?

 NO. ILLINOIS DOES NOT PERMIT NOTARIES TO CERTIFY ORIGINAL BIRTH, MARRIAGE OR DEATH CERTIFICATES.

 

CAN AN ILLINOIS NOTARY PUBLIC CERTIFY COPIES OF DOCUMENTS?

 NO. ILLINOIS DOES NOT PERMIT NOTARIES TO CERTIFY COPIES OF DOCUMENTS.

  • However, we can notarize your signature on a form called "COPY CERTIFICATION BY CUSTODIAN FORM". This form states that the owner of the attached certificate is the owner, and their signature on the form, certifies that the owner made a copy of the original certificate. We do not guarantee that this document is a proper substitue.
