This is a question that has 1,000 lives doesn't it.  If I remember correctly.... this is just me saying this delicately....  a US Notary can only notarize something WHERE their 'license' is valid. There are no valid US licenses in Mexico EXCEPT at the consulate.

There may be a way to do it 'on line' in some/all states. See  https://youtu.be/5GeR8XTWR3M

Exactly, Geeser, however maybe 10 years ago an acquaintance needed something notarized by someone from the US, perhaps California and he/she notarized documents for his/her acquaintances, lakeside, for a small fee.  I bet there are still US licensed state notaries  providing this service under the table for a slightly larger fee that what one would pay up north, lakeside. But I have no idea whom

Do it the legal way: Use the nearest Mexican Notaria.

We, and others, have done that for US real estate sales, etc. It is supported by reciprocal agreements between the countries. Avoid the risk of having a transaction challenged by using an illegal US notary in Mexico.

Oh, Val, I was not questioning the validity of her services at all.... just being a horse's a$$ by poking fun at the name of her business... mixing Norary services with Nuptials just struck me as funny at the time.  No offense.

But I/we may give her a call as may have the need of a Florida notary in the near future!

Thanks.... and again sorry for making fun at someone else's expense.

My experience with On Line Notary.  First thing to know, is that many government entities and private ones are unfamiliar with the validity of on line notary servies, and therefore, will not accept the document as notarized.  I had many documents I needed notarized and the on line service did have the good sense to suggest I call the government agency to see if they would accept this notary.  They would not.  The problem is this is a fairly new way of getting this done, and they have no experience with it.

I did get one document done by the on line notary, (that the recipient would accept) however, I was unable to get a legible printed copy although it was clear on the screen.
