Notaries public are no longer required to sign their signature card at the Bucks County Prothonotary’s office. The signature card will now be signed at the Recorder of Deeds office while their bond and oath are being recorded. The Recorder of Deeds office will then make sure the signature cards are presented to the Prothonotary’s office.
Recorder of Deeds Dan McPhillips said, “Making any process more convenient for our constituents is good government. Having new and renewing notaries public bounce between two buildings, two security systems and managing the parking in Doylestown, it just made sense to work with Coleen Christian, Bucks County Prothonotary, to modernize this process. I am glad we were able to make this work for both of our offices.”
Christian said, “We are beyond happy to streamline the notary process. Efficient, one-stop government service should always be implemented when possible.”
