Jalisco State Legislature Approves New Abilities for Notary Publics

The Jalisco State legislature has approves changes to the State Notarial Law and Civil Code and Code of Civil Procedure to allow Notary Publics to perform certain new activities which should reduce the case load the courts have as well as give people a more rapid way to resolve uncontested administrative matters with a Notary Public in a few months instead of having to have their case presented in the courts where it can drag out for 6 month or 1 to 2 years.

The following are the new abilities Notary Publics will have:
1) Be able to do mutual divorces as long as there are no minor or disabled children who would need support.
2) Correction of errors in Birth / Marriage / Death Certificates.
3) Be able to process intestate probate cases in cases with no minor or disabled children and where there are no conflicts between the parties.
4) Be able to do cases of surveying and demarcation of property boundaries.

We work with many different bilingual notaries all over the State of Jalisco so we can help in obtaining all necessary documents as well as all translations and explanations as well as help the notaries drop of papers to various government offices so that your case will be quick and easy.

The new measures will take a huge burden off of the courts which have been increasingly slower each month as their caseload rises and their budget doesn´t. Processes that were taking 9 to 12 months or more should now take as little as 1 to 3 months.
