Free!! Digital Desk Reference of TEXAS LAWS for TEXAS NOTARY PROFESSIONALS

I recommend training from the AAN's Texas Online Notary Course.

I receive no incentive or commission for saying this.  

In full disclosure, I helped proofread and edit this course. It is an amazingly detailed training course that will provide you with insight on how to handle almost every conceivable issue you will face as a Texas notary public. 

Introducing the Digital Desk Reference of Laws for Texas Notary Professionals!

On page 11 there's an invitation for Texas notaries 

to join my Texas Notary Professionals group on Facebook, plus more! 

Texas notary laws are different than most states in that our notary laws are scattered out all over the Texas statutes.

I decided to make my own law book that I could carry with me on my iPad or phone.

After using my self-made digital notary law book, I realized that Texas notaries would benefit from the use of a similar tool.  I spruced it up a little for you and I'm sharing it right here on NotariesAndNotaryNews.com!

This volume isn’t a great work of art, but it is a powerful resource for Texas Notary Professionals! 

BEFORE YOU READ ANY FURTHER, READ THIS!
I’m not an attorney and I don’t play one on television!  Please understand that what you have in your hands is only a replication of my own personal Digital Desk Reference. Any comments in it are only the musings of a Texas notary.  IT IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE and that’s why the price of this volume is $0.00 -- FREE.  Sorry, but I also have to say this:  The use of the book is at your own risk and the author and publisher is not responsible for its contents or errors you may find in it.

In this Digital Desk Reference for Texas Notary Professionals, you’ll find…

LAWS COMMONLY CONSIDERED “TEXAS NOTARY LAWS”
The bulk of this book are laws copied from the Texas statutes, organized and included in a table of contents to give them ready accessibility. 

PLUS, OTHER LAWS THAT MOST HANDBOOKS DON’T INCLUDE
For instance, I have included the law from the Texas Business and Commerce Code that says Texas notaries must not include thumbprints of signers in their journals and a section from the Texas Civil Procedures and Remedies Code on how acknowledgments can cause technical defects in documents.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME LAWS INCLUDE ALL SUB-SECTIONS AND OTHERS INCLUDE ONLY THE RELEVANT SUB-SECTIONS
Where it made sense to include all of a section’s text, I included it.  If there were just one or two sub-sections that related to your duties, I included only those.  Also, you’ll find that not every sub-section is noted in the Table of Contents because they were only there for reference purposes.  I went through all the laws and made Table of Contents headings for the sub-sections that I felt were important to include.

Again, keep in mind, I’m not your attorney!  These headings and this Digital Desk Reference’s contents are for convenience only and may be included or not included in error or based on the author’s non-expert/non-lawyer opinion.

PLUS, INTRODUCTORY SECTIONS TO LAWS
All of the sections of laws included in this Digital Desk Reference have an introductory section and some have articles that explain why they are important.

PLUS, A USEFUL LIST OF TEXAS NOTARY RESOURCES
This list will help you find almost anything you need as a Texas notary. From free training materials from the Secretary of State that you may not have known about, to an online training course that I recommend, to quick links to laws, and more!

How to use this Digital Desk Reference
Print it out and put it in a notebook, or save it to your computer, the cloud, or on your smart phone or tablet.  Have it with you wherever your mobile notary business takes you!

You can look at the Table of Contents to locate anything you need to know. 

When using it with Adobe Reader on your computer, simply use the “Find” (CTRL+F) command to locate topics you’re looking for.  When you’re finished reading that page, look at the bottom where you’ll find a link “Go to TOC” and skip back to the beginning of the Table of Contents in a jiffy.

Please note that in my experience, the “Go to TOC” function doesn’t work on mobile devices and you must scroll back to the top of the document to locate the Table of Contents.

Thanks for reading!

Warmly,
