Curious, did your background check clear you so that you can conduct closings?

...serving the Chicagoland area since 1991.

Well, first, I'd have to ask - how did you get your commission?

The NJ SOS site states one of the qualifications as follows:

"Personal Background
The State Treasurer may not appoint any person who has been convicted of a crime under the laws of any state or the United States, for an offense involving dishonesty, or a crime of the first or second degree. "

I would guess it depends on what your misdemeanors were for (and you had "a ton"???) - possible the severity or non-severity of the wrongdoing together with the lapse of time since your last one played a factor.

My suggestion? Do the BGC only through NNA - if nothing else you'll know what it comes up with and whether you pass or not - without the expense of the certification program. If you have a problem signing up for just the BGC there I'd call them and talk to someone - see what they can do for you.

Good luck

I'm a newly commissioned notary in NJ. I was sworn in last month and immediately began learning how to do loan signings, Well I was just about to buy a dual tray laser printer today when my wife told me that I may NOT be able to even do loan signings. You see, I have NO felonies on my record, but I have tons of misdemeanors dating back to the 90's up to 2003 and probably wouldnt be able to pass the NNA background check, could anyone shed some light on this for me and tell me if i should start looking for another business? If not what should I do? I know I can do loan signings if hired to do so
