San Diego Notary

Immigration Documents

Contrary to popular belief, there is no prohibition against notarizing immigration documents. However, several laws specifically outline what a notary public can and cannot do. Only a person who is qualified and bonded as an immigration consultant under the Business and Professions Code may assist a client in completing immigration forms. A notary public may not charge any individual more than $10 for each set of forms, unless the notary public is also an attorney who is rendering professional services as an attorney.
