Notarizing a document in CCDC jail can be done. However, the process can be a little complicated to understand depending on the facility the inmate is in, as well as more costly and time consuming than that of a regular notarization. There can be extended wait times, denial of visitation, and failure to have proper identification when it comes to notarizing in a CCDC jail. The person who is requesting for a inmate to sign the paperwork needs to take into consideration all the possible scenarios and costs that the notary will charge if the circumstances cause an unsuccessful signing, or they have to wait an extended period of time. These circumstances are out of the notaries control, and are often out of the control of the jail’s employees.
During a jail notarization, the notary public will drive to the facility and request a professional visit with the specific inmate. They will present their identification and credentials to the employee who is checking them in, and will wait to be approved and escorted up to the professional visit room to conduct the signing. The wait can vary based on whether the guards are not available to immediately escort the inmate to the signing, whether the inmate is current preoccupied, or whether there is any professional visiting rooms available ( as there can be other notaries, or lawyers occupying the rooms).
The inmate must have a jail wristband, or state identification that matches the name on the document. So if they have two middle names listed on the document, both of those names must be listed on the wristband or the identification card. A lot of the times the jail does not have the full legal name of the inmate on their wristband, and the notary would have to decline to notarize if the two do not match. Always call the jail to research whether they have proper information of the inmate to facilitate being able to notarize.
Jail notarization can be as quick as 20-30 minutes, or take as long as 3 hours if things go wrong. The customer will need to compensate the notary for any time spent.
