    numbers of the notary public assigned and coming out to their scheduled appointment.

HOW DO I PAY FOR YOUR SERVICES?

    CNS does have a pre-payment policy, prior to meeting with the signer. This is to ensure that our Notary Publics / Notary Signing Agents are not only made available for its
    paying clients', but will ensure those that book with us, actually show up to their scheduled appointments. There are certain circumstances that a CNS Notary Public will
    accept payment at the time of the notarization, but these are rare, and you should call us FIRST, before booking to verify this. CNS is a trust worthy service and has been in
    business since 2007. We are reliable, honest, State commissioned for Illinois & Wisconsin, appropriately bonded and insured. CNS treats EVERY CLIENT like a VIP, and all
    appointments are kept strictly confidential.

HOW LONG WILL CNS NOTARY WAIT FOR ME IF I AM RUNNING LATE FOR OUR SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT?

    Generally, our Notary Publics or Notary Signing Agents, will wait at maximum of  .15 minutes during which they will give the client a courtesy call letting them know of their
    arrival at the agreed upon location, and when they anticipate to leave. Both CNS staff and our clients are expected to act professionally at all times, and if running late to a
    scheduled appointment, are expected to send a courtesy text or phone call to the other party waiting for them.

    However should client fail to show up to scheduled appointment (NO SHOW) or fail to reschedule the appointment with the Notary Public, Notary Signing Agent or CNS
    staff, any and all pre-payments made for services, will be deemed forfeited by the client, to cover the travel expenses of the dispatched Notary Public or Notary  Signing
    Agents time.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NOTARY PUBLIC AND A NOTARY SIGNING AGENT?

    A Notary Public can, after properly verifying the identity of an individual, notarize any document a signer signs, that is legally permitted by State & Federal law. A Notary
    Signing Agent is a specially trained notary public specifically used for and to handle all Real Estate and other Loan or Financial transactions.
