Got 4 docs notarised

My husband needed to give me permission to change my name and register my marriage. I needed to give POA to my lawyer again and submit a sworn statement saying why I deserve citizenship.

We went back to the same notary before and expected it to be very easy like it was last time. Unfortunately it wasn't. After explaining for what seemed like the tenth time that we wanted four notarisations and not two, they said that we would need everything translated into Korean.

Trying to explain to them that no, they didn't need to know what was in the docs and that our signatures were the only important thing was like hitting our heads against brick walls.

They called someone who said it cost 60,000 to translate it and it wouldn't be ready today. Someone else came down from another office and found a solution. Yea for thinking outside the box. He said I could use goggle translate to summarise what was on the docs and they'd notarise it.

So I did.

Then very officially the man called us up looked at our IDs and asked our birthdays and if the signatures on the docs were ours (of course they were, we had just signed in front of him) and then they were notarised.

It took about an hour start to finish and only cost 62,000 for four docs and last time it cost 50,000 for two. I don't understand why it was cheaper this time, but I'm glad it was.

Now I just need to get them apostillised.

Be sure to read about what has happened so far. You can find everything in the quick summary of dates.
