The office of a Notary Public is a serious and responsible public office and should not be taken lightly. Abuse of the office or irresponsibility in the performance of notarial duties can result in grave consequences. If a Notary Public has doubts about the propriety of any action, he or she should seek competent professional advice before he or she acts.
For more information about Notary Public, you may want to purchase the handbook, A Manual for Notaries Public, published by the Young Lawyer’s Section of the Alabama State Bar. The manual cost is $5.00.
