BEARING WITNESS [non-notarial] (on top of Standard Clerical Fee) – $5.00 (additional @ $1.00)

Very often forms will require additional witness/es to signing a document. In Pennsylvania it is 100% legal and permissible for a Notary Public to act as a witness to the fact, providing that the witness is not included in the Acknowledgment and/or in the notarial wording for the act. J. Reisner Notary charges a $5.00 clerical fee for the 1st instance of this on your document and $1.00 for each additional witness signature required. IMPORTANT this witnessing signature is not a notarial act and should not be constituted as such; a notary have no further authority for said acts then any other citizen or pedestrian. However, as a matter of good practice for providing witnesses, the witness should be an individual whose location and contact information is known and attainable by the document subscriber.
