I Need To Start A Notary School

george's notary universityToday (4/21/14) was boring on the notary front. I had one job for a commercial regular where I notarized 8 bids for them. I had another job where I helped a man get a vehicle’s title switched. That was it. Blah.

Today was also Jaci’s (our daughter) 22 birthday. Wow, I have an adult. We had a little party for her, had some friends over, and ate some food. It was fun.

Why do I need to start a notary school? Because friends keep asking me about becoming one! I just got off the phone with an old friend from Alaska. It turns out that he’s interested. That’s the third friend in two weeks that has asked me about becoming a notary. George’s Notary University?

 

Happy Easter Baton Rouge!

happy easter baton rougeToday (4/20/14) is Easter, so happy Easter Baton Rouge!

It’s been a fun day for us. After searching all the Wal Marts in town until late last night, we finally finished getting everything ready for the kids’ baskets. Stacey has a very particular way of wrapping them, so we had to search everywhere until we found the right wrapping. It was nuts seeing all of the empty shelves at the stores around midnight.

We started the day off with the kids opening their baskets. They have chocolate for days, so I will help lighten them this afternoon.

Quinn had to go to work, so after he left the rest of us went to The Londoner for brunch.They had bottomless mimosas. Say what?!? Stacey and Jaci had to act all proper, but I started chugging to get my $5 Easter buzz on. After we ate, and got buzzed, we played one game of pool. It was pretty bad, but fun.

After The Londoner we all went to see a movie- Heaven Is For Real. I am a sceptic, so I had a bad chip on my shoulders going into it, but by the end of the movie I was a softy. It was really touching.

Now Stacey is making dinner with a fancy looking salad. Quinn is still working. Alec is hiding in his room. Jaci and I are sitting here waiting for the new Game of Thrones to come on. Good times.

On the notary front, I slipped four jobs in today. I met a woman at a parking lot on Highland for a loan modification closing. I met a family at OLOL hospital to revoke a power of attorney, and they game me a $50 tip for coming on Easter. Thank you family! I then met a couple at our house to notarize a 401k form, and last of all I did another modification signing at a home in Old Jefferson. It was a good and lazy notary day.

Thank you for reading my notary blog. If you need help, please call me at 225-907-5280.

Why You Need a Will In Louisiana

last will louisianaMost of us have no last will & testament. I would venture to say that over 90% of us adults don’t have one in Louisiana. There are probably three primary reasons that we don’t have one: we’re poor and there isn’t much to give away, we don’t like to think about dying, or we’re just lazy. I would like to discuss why these excuses are bad, and exactly why you need a will.

Hey, I’m basically broke, so why would I need a will? Most of us are more or less poor, but that is no excuse to not have a will. If you have kids, a last will is critical because it is your chance to tell the courts who you want to become the guardian of your children. Even if you’re not rich, a will can explain what you want done with the belongings that you do have. Even if you don’t have much now, that could change in the future, and you want to figure out who should get what now while you can. If a succession is opened in the future, you can state who should be in charge of administering your estate in a last will. Without a will, the courts will have to decide who should be the administrator, without any input from you. If you don’t have much, your will can still be used to explain how you want to be buried or cremated when you die.

I don’t like to think about death, so do I really need a will? Yes, as an adult, we sometimes have to suck it up and deal with reality. We’re all on a one way ticket to the beyond. The only question is if we are prepared for it. The one way that you can really prepare your affairs and family for your eventual death is with a last will and testament. If you don’t have one, Louisiana’s intestacy laws will govern. Under these laws, the state will decide who gets what, not you. The state will decide who gets to raise your kids, without any guidance from you. The state will decide who gets to administer your estate, without your input. Your family will likely argue and fight over what you wanted to be done, without your input. You can settle all of it by spending just a few hours on it now.

I haven’t written a will because I’m lazy, so why should I do it now? I’m lazy too. If it was up to me, I would live on my couch with a stack of pizzas within arm’s reach. The problem with being lazy on creating a will is that the lack of effort on your part can destroy your family in the future. Without a will, there can be massive chaos after your death. I have seen so many families torn apart because their loved one left no instructions for them before they died. You can literally create a will that can state your intentions forever in less than two hours. I under two hours you can avoid absolute turmoil in the future.

With a last will & testament in Louisiana you can:

  • Decide who gets what. Without a will, the state will decide for you.
  • Declare who you wish to raise your children. The courts will still have to approve your choice, but the odds of having the right guardians rise dramatically if you state your wishes in your will.
  • Declare who you want to settle your estate upon your death.
  • Tell your family how you want to be buried or cremated.
  • Show your family that you loved them and cared about them.

Because the laws in Louisiana are very particular and stringent when writing a will, it is highly advised that you seek help to make sure that the formalities are met. If you are in the Baton Rouge area, and you would like to discuss your needs, feel free to call me at 225-907-5280.

Holy Saturday, Lazy Notary

holy saturdayToday (4/19/14) is Holy Saturday, also known as the day before Easter, also known as the day before I get sick on chocolates. It’s been a good and lazy day for me.

  • I started my notary day off by meeting a couple on Jones Creek. They are setting up an LLC in preparation for starting a new gym. Nice people.
  • I then ran to the Target store on Millerville to otarize a truck sale. The buyer was “interesting”, also known as “strange”, and maybe “weird”. I liked him.
  • I followed that vehicle sale up by walking into the Target store to notarize a loan modification closing. Convenient, right? It went fast and easy, just like I like them.
  • The next run brought me back to Jones Creek to the Hi Nabor store where I notarized a 401k form for a couple. Again, “interesting” people.
  • I then traveled to the hood to notarize another truck sale. They people were actually very friendly and grateful. It’s kind of sad to see good people living next to pimps and drug dealers.
  • The final, so far, job of the day was a cancellation of a promissory note. There was a twist in it because a POA was involved, but it went just fine.

Yep, a good and lazy day. I made a few bucks, and there was zero stress involved, also known as perfect.
