Question Help! How do I get a member of the "Notary Public?"

I need to get a Power of Attorney for my man while he is incarcerated. In Arkansas apparently when he signs it a member of the Notary Public also must be present and sign it AS WELL AS a witness... how on earth do I go about arranging that????

How do I get a Notary Public person?? A witness? How on earth can I do that? I just don't even know where to begin! Or what to do! Please help!!!!

He has only been gone 3 weeks and I am already getting completely bogged down and overwhelmed by all of this...
"Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And somethin' warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely

Stand by your man
And show the world you love him
Keep givin' all the love you can
Stand by your man."

There is usually a notary somewhere within a prison... If you need one yourself, most banks have a notary. All attorneys are notaries. All a notary does is say "Do you swear or affirm that the statements in this document are true so help you God?" Yes...and sign. It's no big deal.

This may be true in some states, but not in all.

In Indiana insurance agencies usually have at least one person on staff who is a notary as well. But prisons usually do because the guy can't leave to sign so prob the best thing is for him to ask his counselor how he can get it done. I sent the POA form to my son and his counselor helped him get it done. I sent them a return stamped envelope and they didn't use that - used their own.
