We are not attorneys and therefore, by law, can not explain or interpret the contents of any documents to a signer, we cannot instruct a signer how to complete a document or direct a signer on the advisability of signing a particular document. By doing so, we would be engaging in the ‘unauthorized practice of law’ and could face legal penalties that include the possibility of losing our notary commission, and even fines and jail time.
