If you need a Colorado Springs free notary public to notarize a document, check to see if your bank or credit union offers notary public services. Many banks offer free notary public services to bank customers.
Before driving to your bank for free Colorado Springs notary service, call ahead to make sure there is a notary on duty, and to find out if there are any restrictions on the types of documents they will notarize.
You may need to bring evidence that you are a bank customer, such as a checkbook, account statement or a credit card issued by the bank.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice: Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and public health emergency, normal notary services may be altered, slowed, restricted or unavailable. Follow all health safety and disinfecting guidelines recommended or required by public health officials, other government officials, and business policies.
Some banks have restrictions on the types of documents that they will notarize. Many will not notarize a will, trust or deed, or will not notarize a document unless it is related to bank business. Some will not notarize for all of the public, only for bank customers. The bank employees are being paid wages or a salary to serve bank customers.
If you need a document notarized in the evening, or on the weekend, or on a holiday, the banks and other walk-in notary locations will be closed. Banks will also require that you drive to the bank, and spend your time driving and waiting in line. They do not offer Colorado Springs mobile notary service.
Mobile Notary, Colorado Springs
Another choice is to call a mobile notary in Colorado Springs. There are mobile notaries who will drive to your home or office location, law firm, hospital or nursing home, or meet you at a public place, such as McDonald’s or Starbucks.
Look for a Colorado Springs mobile notary website that shows the business hours and a fee schedule.
A self-employed mobile notary has business expenses to pay, so you will have to pay a travel fee and a notary fee, but you can schedule an appointment to meet at a convenient time and place. If you meet at a location near the mobile notary’s home base, the notary may be willing to voluntarily waive or reduce the notary fee or the travel fee for you, in special situations. A notary is not required to provide free services.
Some notaries may voluntarily offer Colorado Springs pro bono notary public services for customers experiencing financial hardship, disaster, impairment, disability or for humanitarian or charitable reasons. The maximum notary fee is set by state law, but the notary fee may be reduced or waived.
Pro Bono Services
Waiving the normal notary fee to provide free notary public services is known as pro bono publico, or simply pro bono, which in Latin means for the good of the public.
For pro bono services, skills of trained professionals are used to provide services to those who are unable to afford them. Some notaries also volunteer their time, energy, skills and knowledge doing other community services, volunteer work, or mentoring new notaries.
If a notary is willing to waive the notary fee or travel fee for you, and provide Colorado Springs pro bono notary public services, consider requesting some extra business cards from the notary to give to your friends and associates who may need notary services.
