I am a Us citizen traveling through Asia. I have legal documents I need notarized. I’m unable to get an appointment at the US embassy and was planning to find a private notary to do this. Do you know if this will be accepted in the US? Or am I required to use a notary service through the Us embassy?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

As long as the document is notarized in accordance with the laws of the place where you have it notarized, then it is acceptable in the US. So, if you go to an official private notary and they notarize the document in accordance with the law, then it is an acceptable notary for the form.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
