Acknowledgment and Non-English Speaking Signer

Ok, but if they don’t speak English, how do I know that “…they are signing of their own free will for the purposes therein contained.”?

Reply to CV: Unless you’re working a counter at a store that does walk in notarization, your request will be by telephone usually from someone who speaks some English. Qualifying questions would be signers ID, age, and whether they speak and understand English. From that point you can accept or decline or ask more questions. If the caller then offers to translate you should decline. I have a solid contact list of local notaries with other language skills I can refer them to.
