Witness Open Call: What to Expect

BlueNotary offers a hassle-free process for notaries to act as witnesses during signings. By utilizing their pre-vetted pool of notaries as the witness pool, the platform eliminates the need for notaries to coordinate with third-party witnesses. This eliminates much of the legwork that might be involved in finding an available witness, making the process simpler and more convenient.

As a notary, if you're looking to participate in BlueNotary's program, it's a straightforward process. Once you accept your first call as a witness, you'll receive a notification either through the dashboard or via email. During the session, you'll be able to see both the signers and the notary.

As a witness, your role is essentially to observe. When you go into the session, the signers and notary will be present. You have the option to introduce yourself or remain silent. Sometimes the notary will introduce you as the witness to the signers. After that, it's best to remain silent unless you're asked specific questions. As a rule of thumb, it's best not to make any comments about the document, signers, or anything else unless you're specifically asked. The notary is in charge of the proceedings and will guide you through the process.

During the session, the notary may ask for your address for certain purposes, as well as the spelling of your name. You'll also be asked to sign the documents. However, other than these few tasks, the process is relatively straightforward.

If you have any questions about the process, BlueNotary offers several resources to help. The BlueNotary YouTube channel and website offer valuable information, and the Facebook page is also a great resource for answers to any questions you may have.

In conclusion, participating as a witness for BlueNotary's program is a simple and straightforward process. By following these guidelines and relying on the expertise of the notary, you can make your first open call a success. For new notaries looking for a more convenient way to participate in signings, BlueNotary is an excellent option.
