CA Assembly Bill 2217

Notary Law Update: CA Assembly Bill 2217

State: California

Summary:

Assembly Bill 2217 raises the fees Notaries may charge for the first time since 1994.

Signed:  August 17, 2016

Effective:  January 01, 2017

Chapter: 133

Affects:

Amends Government Code Sections 8211 and 8223

Changes:

  1. Raises the maximum fee Notaries may charge for taking an acknowledgment or affidavit, or administering an oath or affirmation from $10 to $15.
  2. Raises the maximum fee Notaries may charge for taking a deposition to from $20 $30 and for administering the oath or affirmation for the deposition from $5 to $7, and raises the fee for the certificate to a deposition from $5 to $7.
  3. Raises the maximum fee Notaries may charge for certifying a copy of a power of attorney from $10 to $15.
  4. Raises the maximum fee a Notary who is qualified and bonded as an immigration consultant may charge for completing a set of immigration forms for per individual from $10 to $15.
  5. Makes a technical, non-substantive change.

Analysis:

Assembly Bill 2217 effectively gives Notaries a 50% raise from the maximum fees for most notarial acts under current law. Assembly member David Hadley, the bill sponsor, had introduced legislation last year that would have eliminated the fee schedule entirely, allowing Notaries to charge their own fees. That measure was unsuccessful. This year he proposed AB 2217 with its 50% raise based on the increase in the consumer price index since 1994, the last time fees were raised in California. The bill passed through the Assembly without objection on the consent calendar, and easily passed the Senate. With the increase, which is effective January 1, 2017, California will now be alone in allowing Notaries to charge the highest fees of any other state.

A photo for practical purpose

Well, we are not  a glamor photo studio, fashion photographer, photojournalist or press photographer. We do not edit, retouch, glamorize or decorate your picture/s. No! That is a no- no in our line of business. Our aim is to capture you as “you!” No more, no less. That is it! We want to show you as you are in your normal facial expression.  Please no blinking, no smiling, no frowning, no crying or no other sort of crazy gestures. We don’t want you to wear excessive make ups, have an oily face or wear your fancy huts. No! Also, we don’t want you to wear over size dangling earrings, fancy eyeglasses or designer head wraps.  Here they are not  permitted.

In our line of business,  we are required to take your picture just “plain”.  Here, you will not see a nice fake backdrop like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Gold Gate bridge in San Francisco, a water fall from Niagara Falls or Time Square  shoot from New York City. We will not add an illusion to your photos like fake blue sky, digital land escape or you will not hug a Teddy Bear or surrounded by digital zoo animals. In our studio there will be you, light, white background, chair, the camera and the photographer . Even we don’t say “Say cheese” because opening your mouse is not allowed. We will not make a squeaky noise to make you smile or even we will not try to tell you have a bit smile.
