Manhattan Mobile Notary & Apostille Service is the New York City authority on notarizing your important documents and obtaining any required NY State Apostilles for your foreign-bound documents. All of our notaries have been fully vaccinated and wear masks at all times during our visit with you.
Manhattan Mobile Notary (formerly “Mike’s Manhattan Mobile Notary”) prides itself on the experience, expertise and unmatched reliability we bring to our clients, all at a reasonable rate (click here for our fees and payment methods: Pricing and Payment section.) Our Manhattan-based mobile notaries travel to Manhattan homes, offices and other sites (from Wall Street to 96th Street). We professionally notarize the full spectrum of corporate and personal documents and, in addition to obtaining NY Apostilles for documents being used in other countries, we can obtain California and US Apostilles and Certifications, as well as Delaware Apostilles and Certifications of Delaware corporate documents.
We have provided New York, NY with knowledgeable New York State-licensed traveling notaries commissioned in New York County (Manhattan) for over 18 years.
We provide in-depth experience notarizing every type of corporate and personal document…from affidavits, corporate agreements and commercial office leases to consent forms, power-of-attorney documents and prenup agreements…plus trusts, will affidavits and other estate planning documents.
We provide notarizations and apostille services for individuals and for corporate clients (from ABC to ZocDocs) and obtain NY apostilles for long-form NYC birth certificates, NYC death certificates, extended NYC marriage certificates and NY State Certificate of Incorporation documents, as well as power-of-attorney documents and self-attesting statements about your ID and proof of address copies (see our FAQ section for notarizing ID copies at the top of this homepage or click here). We prefer to perform the notarizations ourselves for apostille documents whenever possible as they are heavily scrutinized by the County Clerk.
A FEW DOCUMENTS WE CANNOT NOTARIZE:
- I-9 Forms (it requires that we sign a statement that we are not authorized to sign)
- Just the signature page of a document without the rest of the document present.
- Documents that have a lot of blank spaces or blank lines anywhere above your signature area, especially when there is a notary section where you are swearing to the notary that the contents/statements of the document are true.
For clients requiring a NY apostille (the NY government’s certification of the signatures of certain types of documents being used in other, apostille-member countries), we can also meet at our Manhattan office at 246 Fifth Avenue (at 28th St.) to start the process for Apostille projects Please note: apostille office visits are by appointment only. Walk-ins or notary-only appointments are not available. Please do not ship documents to this address as we have a separate shipping address at Manhattan Mobile Notary & Apostille, 200 East 15th St., Attn: Michael Senz, #5F, NY, NY 10003. However, you should not ship any documents to this address until your documents have been reviewed and okayed).
Check the NY Apostilles link at the top of this page for information about the NY Apostille process (or click here) and see how you can take advantage of our in-depth experience obtaining apostilles for ALL apostille countries across the globe…from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and the Dominican Republic to France, Italy, Russia and South Korea, and everywhere in between.
DOCUMENT REVIEW: It is always safest if we can at least see the unsigned signature/title (if applicable)/printed name area and notary section of the document by email to see what we’re dealing with before we arrive. We find a large number of errors in the signature area and notary statement (or see no notary statement*), inconsistencies in the spelling of names, as well as extra signature lines for third party witnesses and inadequate spacing for our notary stamps or information being inserted.
*Documents being notarized require a “notary acknowledgment” or “notary jurat” under or next to the unsigned signature area…or you or the receiving authority would need to advise us on which NY notary statement to add to your document in the white space or as an attached page.
PRICING: Click on the Pricing & Payment tab at the top left corner of this homepage for notary and apostille fees and payment methods (or here) and the Coverage and Hours section at the bottom of the page for details about the areas we provide NYC notary and apostille services. For foreign-bound documents, you’ll find information regarding our NY apostille service at the Apostille tab.
REQUIREMENTS: It is also important that you take a couple of minutes to click on the Requirements tab at the top of this page (or here) and review the applicable areas before we set up an appointment. We may want to quickly go over the document title and certain parts of the document before the document or the unsigned signature page/notary section is emailed/texted to us to review (preferably with the complete document in front of you) to confirm some of the details and make sure we can assist you.
PRINTING: If you give us a little notice (either the day before, early enough before we are on the road or enough time to stop at a FedEx/Kinkos or Staples), we can also print your documents for you. See Pricing Section.
KEY DETAILS: When communicating your project details, we will eventually need your name, phone number, address (with company name, suite or apartment number), notarization details (especially the number of signers and number of notarizations per signer in total), and requested or required time window or deadline.
NOTE: Please note that whoever is being notarized must bepresent with a valid photo ID and, in most cases, needs to sign in front of the notary as well. Some types of NYC notarizations allow the signer(s) to sign in advance, but they still need to be present.
RESTRICTIONS: The notary needs to establish that the person being notarized understands what he or she is signing and we cannot notarize anyone with dementia or Alzheimer’s. The notary also needs to be able to communicate with the signer directly (without a translator). In addition, if there is a “witness” signature line included on your document (possibly requiring a witness separate from the notary), please be sure to mention that to us (and to check with the person who sent you the document whether the notary can be a witness. If we are notarizing the witness, we definitely cannot be one of the witnesses).
OBTAINING CERTIFIED MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE FOR YOU:
The first step in this process is to get a Third Party Authorization Letter filled out (dated at top with same day as notarization), signed by you and notarized, so we can obtain the certified marriage certificate on your behalf. We would need to send you a sample letter and provide you with the names you would be authorizing before you sign the letter in front of the notary. You can have us meet you at the location of your choice in Manhattan to notarize you or you can have a notary in your area do it. If doing it with a notary in your area, we would need to see the notarized letter by email before you send it to us as a large percentage are done incorrectly. It is usually safer to have us notarize the letter since we know what has to be done to be accepted. Please see our notary fees at top of this page. Sidenote: We once had a client get somewhat insulted by having to show us the final notarized letter as “he knew how to get a document notarized,” but the notary actually wrote in his notary commission expiration date as the date of the notarization, so it had to be re-notarized by us. We will also need you to send us a clear photocopy or photo of your original non-certified marriage certificate by email or with the original notarized authorization letter to use for filling out the details of your marriage on the certified marriage certificate application. We will provide you with a special delivery address to send any documents to once everything has been approved.
