Policy

*Our fees are flat. This means we do not charge extra for mileage or multiple documents.  However, if the amount of documents you have cannot be completed/notarized within one hour and thirty minutes, you are charged half of the initial flat fee per hour until your service is completed.

Chicago Prime Notary Policy : After our scheduled operation time has ended, there are multiple processes that must be followed in order to receive our service as you would during work hours (not applicable to you if the time your service is required is within operational hours) which include :

  • (1) A 50% Deposit of the Full Service Amount (I.E. original fees coupled with late fees) must be paid before Notary is en-route. Payment must first be made online via Debit, Credit, or PayPal – no cash or check.
  • (2) The remaining amounts can be paid in person once the notary arrives and completes the service. This is to guarantee our Notary mileage in case of indecisiveness or cancellation.
  • (3) There then remains a $150.00 After Hours fee. (This section applies to all clients during operational and after operational hours) : Once the Notary arrives, it is a legal obligation and civil duty to pay the Notary. A service is provided, and the service should be paid for regardless of occupation, status, bias, etc. If the Notary uses his/her stamp, a transaction has occurred.

Note : Notaries are not allowed to give legal advice. A Notary can only advise on Notarial Acts as per training and obligation by the state they are sanctioned to act as a representative (notary) within. Our Notaries will attempt at answering questions as accurately as possible, but cannot under any circumstance give you legal advice. Questions such as :

(i)“What form should I use?”

(ii)“What would a lawyer think?”

(iii)“Is this document safe to sign?”

cannot be answered by a Notary Public.

This constitutes as the following : The Notary signing and notarizing your documents, whether its form is sanctioned or not sanctioned as standard or acceptable by any institution, state, officer, agent, or ward is not responsible for those said institutions,  states, officers, agents, or wards process in which they validate or invalidate documentation.

The Notary Stamp, Seal, and Signature our Notaries use is commissioned, legal, legit, public knowledge and on record on the accompanying states Secretary of State website.
