    Bernice, I have done two notorizings at our local jail. They usually have their oun people but I knew somebody that worked there and he called me. I did not charge anything because the inmates have accounts, some with money from family or friends some don't receive anything at all. Usually it is a one page "power of attorney" so that the inmates can assign someone to care for their matters while they are incarerated. I do live in a small town so I look upon these transactions as a community service.

    Hi Bernice, I had a attorney call me last month at the LAX jail (under the court house). I charged the same amount that Calif allows plus gas. I had to go the with the attorney and the attorney did his thing with the Judge, then we went to the Jail under the building. It was 20 minutes, but had to wait on the Judge. I'm glad I had experience.

    Hi Bernice I do the local jail often and it is usually for release of liability for towed vehicles I charge a flat $100.00 because of the distance I amount of time it takes for me to wait for the staff to let me in to see the inmates. You can't make appoitments so there is no telling how long you have to sit there and wait smoetimes it can take an hour or more depending on the other things happening.

    I charge $15 to go to the jail and the state maximum notary fee. I have only done jail notaries upon the request of a party not in jail. The majority have been Powers of Attorney. I have never had a problem getting in to the jail to help them out.

    Thanks for the great information you all have provided. I got the same question and finally got answers.

    I went to the jail locally and I was told they had their own notaries and never used outside notaries so I didn't bother to leave a card. I was a little disappointed.

    You might try your local nursing homes, hospitals and hospices. I find talking to the social workers and case managers the best way to "get in the door."
