Beachdog, That makes sense. The flip side of that situation. When I applied for QRP status in Belize my paperwork was notarized by my next door neighbor who was a Notary. This was done in the USA and accepted by Belize.
I think it all depends on who is asking for the stamp. Real important papers like your real estate transaction might be scrutinized more.
$50 USD per page…..wow Some transactions I have done required a guaranteed signature and if I paid at all it certainly wasn’t that high. I would think that would be more expensive. It might have cost $5 or $10 USD.
