I did a bunch of these a few years back. At that time it was just notary work. The "tricky" part was notarizing each page of the NCR "carbon paper" forms. My fee was $75 and they liked to pay 70, but agreed to my 75. One time they shorted me 5$ and I called them about it. I received the 5$ but they stopped calling. Such is life. The paperwork is unlike any other, with many of the forms being State specific. One had to review them very carefully. Sometimes the form is literally 3 feet long - good thing they did not want faxing!

You can NOT accept these assignments if you are in CA. It is a misdemeanor to sign in the capacity of a Paralegal if you do not have the required training dictated by the State Bar.

In Florida, it's illegal to put yourself out as an independent paralegal, no matter how many certifications you have. If you're doing work as a paralegal you MUST be under the direct supervision of an attorney. I'm not sure what the consequences are of advertising and working as an independent paralegal - it was a non-issue for me so I did not look further into what punishments are imposed on those that do - and believe me, there are those that do.

And there are strict requirements for becoming a registered paralegal in Florida too. I was one in CT for 25 years - all those years don't count here. I have to ACTIVELY work for an attorney who is a member of the Florida Bar for two years before I can apply for registered paralegal status; and I must be able to prove I've continued to ACTIVELY work for an attorney in order to renew my registration annually.

LOL - I made it 16 months - DONE!

In Virginia you can call youself almost anything you want. But if something goes wrong no E/O policy will touch it. Even when I only go 10 min from my house; the overall time spent is still the same as a closeing.

Unless you have the experience and education to back up your "Paralegal" title, be careful where you tread. In some states, like Legal Assistant and Legal Document Preparer, it is not a title to just be tossed around. Without knowing more, sounds like you are signing as an employee-paralegal of the company that you represent.

As said, California and Florida have very STRICT requirements on who may use the title "Paralegal" after his/her name. Connecticut does not; however my title is backed up with experience, education, "continuing legal education & ethics requirements" and Registration. I am a National Federation of Paralegal Associations PACE Registered Paralegal; i.e., "RP". FYI. Paralegals are not required to be notaries public.

This is a yes but. I've done it for 2 different companies. One comapny, everthing is done for you and all you do is get the paperwork signed. The other one you are "selling the service". Bottom line you end up you still spend as much time overall as a closeing for very little money. You have to fax all sig pages back to be reviewed before you send it. You mail it and the postage comes out of your fee. I've been asked to trvl up 1 1/2 hours away. So 3 hours trvl, min 1 hour, fax back all sig pages, then wait for OK to mail. Pay for postage out of my fee. Also you sign as a para legal instead of a Notary. In Virginia I can do that but many states have very strict "rules" as to who can call themself a "para legal".

All notaries have the opportunity to learn a new field. There is a FREE training you can take on-line at http://debttrainingusa.com
Once you take that training you will then be contacted for signing work. These signings pay $70.00 to start for around 5-10 docs. Very simple paperwork. This is a very new line of work for notaries and there will be lots of discussions about this. We have a toll free number you can call and we have planned each week to hold webinars for the notaries that have taken the course. That way everyone can be educated on this great new opportunity!! Please check out the website at http://debttrainingusa.com You are opening a new avenue of income for yourself.
