notary question for US docs

So, I know I can get something 'notarized' here in Ticinio using a 'notaio' but I'm curious how this plays out when the documents need to be returned to the US. Yes, I know I can get something notarized at the consulate in Zurich but that would involve me taking off work for a day just to get up there and back. I may end up having to do it anyway since it's the closing documents for selling my house but I'm curious anyway.

Well, I think I already have my answer to this. The escrow people say I have to do it at the consulate... bugger.

Re: notary question for US docs

Yeah, I always go to the Embassy in Bern. I have seen some posts here in the EF mentioning the service from some banks and maybe at the town hall. I don't know if these work for US purposes though. Whenever I need something notarized, I'm usually in a hurry about it and to be sure I go to the Embassy. It would be nice to learn an easier option though.

It is kind of funny though that the majority of Notary Publics that I have been to in the States weren't exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. Doesn't take much to verify an ID and watch you sign something.

Re: notary question for US docs

Yeah, but they are they gate keepers to 'the special stamp'. That's what's most important.....

What about printing on legal-sized paper? Will the consulate/embassy do that for you too? I don't know why these idiots don't print it and Fedex it to me.

I wouldn't count on them being able to do anything more than notarizing the document. The Consul and security staff (at least in Bern) are friendly and helpful but the rest of the staff seem fairly incompetent and seem put out by any request (even routine requests).
