When choosing a notary, it is important to understand how and where your notary is commissioned. Louisiana law requires certain notaries to pass a rigorous test to ensure they know how to handle your matter correctly.
Not all Louisiana notaries are commissioned the same. Some are commissioned to work exclusively in a particular parish, while others may work in the parish they’re commissioned plus some of the neighboring parishes.
At Perkins Road Notary, all our Louisiana notaries have Statewide Jurisdiction.
If a notary has Statewide Jurisdiction like ours do, they have passed a rigorous exam that tests them on areas of the law including authentic acts, wills, mandates (powers of attorney), bills of sale, acts of donation and much more.
To have Statewide Jurisdiction means that a person passed either the Louisiana Notary Exam (also known as the “mini-bar exam”) to become a Louisiana Notary or the Louisiana Bar Exam to become a licensed Louisiana Attorney.
Perkins Road Notary is proud that all our notaries have passed the exam and have Statewide Jurisdiction.
