Paralegals Who Are Notaries
- If you are a paralegal who is also a notary public, you may have
already heard of the notary signing agent field. In the past,
notaries could only charge $1 or $2 to notarize an affidavit, car
title, etc. However, changes in the UCC (uniform commercial code)
law enables a notary to become part of the mortgage closing process
and earn from $75 to $200 per signing.
I can speak from experience. I started doing signings for mortgage
and title companies back in 2001. While still working a full-time
job as a paralegal I notarized loan documents at the borrower(s)
home in the evening and on weekends. The first month I made $800,
which paid the rent and utilites.

signing agent training course that I wrote from my own personal
experience to help others. I hope you find the material interesting
and join the notary signing agent field. It's a great way to make
some extra money without any up-front costs.
