ART GABOT MADLAING: Filing complaint without going home to Philippines

Do you need to file a complaint but can’t go home to the Philippines? 

This was the dilemma and problem of elderly spouses Ricardo and Pacita, ages 89 and 75 respectively, from South San Francisco, California. If you have the same dilemma and problem like this elderly couple, just follow what the couple Ricardo and Pacita did. 

Ricardo and Pacita can’t go home to the Philippines but through the help of their lawyer they were able to file a complaint without going home. Their lawyer prepared sets of complaint and Joint Special Power of Attorney (JPOA) for them. 

When the elderly couple received the documents, they called Mobile Signing Services (MSS)  for help and assistance in the notarization and apostille follow up on the sets of Complaint and Joint Power of Attorney. 

I met Ricardo and Pacita on March 30, 2023 for the notarization of the sets of Complaint and Joint Special Power of Attorney. I had them signed the two documents and then signed my Journal of Notarial Acts and put their right thumb marks. 

After notarization, we submitted the notarized sets of Complaint and Joint Special Power of Attorney to the Secretary of State, Notary Public Section, in Sacramento, California for apostille. The elderly couple were very happy for the prompt, efficient, complete and unique services with MSS.
