Many notary services are unavailable, as a new law, which moves the National Notary Directorate to a different institution, came into effect on Monday.
The new organization is not functioning properly yet, and the situation has complicated the daily operation of the country's 8.000 notaries.
"Roy Jimenez, who was the head of the former Directorate, reminded that each day they authenticated 100 documents to be sent abroad, and authorized 80 new books of notarial paper to be used by notaries [known as 'Protocolo' in Spanish]", reported Nacion.com. "Additionally, the company supplying security paper to notaries is now unable to check if said professionals are active or suspended".
The law firm Alvarenga & Mirón is created to respond to the necessities of the global legal market that requires legal advise, notarial and litigation services in general of the highest quality.
