What If A Customer Signs The Wrong Part Of My Notary Journal?

NNA Hotline Tip Logo

My signer signed my journal in the additional information box instead of signature box. Is this okay?P.S., Pennsylvania

Yes. Sometime these things happen. What matters is that you have all the required entries in the journal record. While having your clients sign journal entries is a recommended standard of practice, it is not required under Pennsylvania law.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
