US Notary in Dumaguete?
Does anyone know if there are any places in Dumaguete one could get a US Notary? Or anywhere for that matter in Cebu even? Not Consulate or Embassy prefered. Thanks
Sorry for the bad news, the answer is no not here. Only at the consulate or embassy.
could a U.S attorney be able to help their is on practicing here in duma
No. Notaries are licensed in specific areas, and cannot legally notarize documents outside of that specific area. The only place in the Philippines you can get a legal US notary is the embassy or consulate.
This subject came up on the board a year or two ago, when someone claimed to be legally notarizing US documents here. I looked up the actual law on this, so if you search the forum you may find it.
Thanks, sad to hear that. Guess need a new plan haha.
All U.S attorney's have been trained to be the biggest crooks!!! I would trust a dog with mange first.
