1. Do you need a Marriage License in Florida to get legally married?
Yes. The Marriage License must be issued in Florida and can be obtained from any Florida Courthouse. If both of you are residents of another state, there is no waiting period. But, if either of you is a Florida resident, there is a 3 day waiting period. You can bypass the 3 day waiting period by completing a 4 hour Pre Marital course from an approved provider. There may be a fee for the Pre Marital Course. Florida residents are given a discount on their marriage license fee if they complete the Pre Marital course from an approved provider.

Generally, the Notary will ask to see a current identification document that has a photograph, physical description and a signature. A driver’s license, military ID or passport will usually be acceptable.
7. What is a mobile loan signing?
Mobile signings involve a notary public traveling to your borrower’s home or office to conduct the signing. This means your borrower usually does not have to make special arrangements to come in to an office or take time off from work. This is especially helpful when trying to coordinate the scheduling of a borrower and their spouse.
8. Why would I want to have my loan handled via a mobile service?
Having your loans signed in a mobile fashion is a step in offering top-notch customer service and convenience. Although a loan officer should be available by phone in case questions arise, essentially, the loan officer is available to pursue other business
9. What happens if questions arise during the loan signing?
Usually, at the time of a loan signing, the loan officer has already discussed the terms of the loan, the HUD details and all the other finer points of the loan. However, even with the most diligent work of a loan officer, questions can arise. If questions arise during the loan signing, the loan officer, title company or attorney will be contacted immediately
10. Will a notary public consultants loan signing agent give opinions to the borrower about the terms of their loan?
No. Our signing agent service requires that signing agents shall at no time give advice or offer any personal or legal opinions regarding the loan terms or conditions or about the parties involved in the loan transaction. We are not lawyers, therefore, we do not interpret the documents or verbally state any information that can be considered practicing law.
11. What are the responsibilities of the loan signing agents?
Aside from communicating with the borrower and lender to facilitating/coordinating the signing, a loan signing agent is also responsible for:
- Ensuring the documents are signed, dated and initialed properly.
- Notarizing all documents that require such notarization.
- Returning the documents in a timely manner.
