my ex-mother-in-law that is a notary in Florida, notarized her sons response to a motion that I put into the courts. I need to know if that is legal and if not, is there any thing legal I can do about it?
Divorce / Separation Lawyer
Per the Florida Statutes, a notary public "may not notarize a signature on a document if the person whose signature is to be notarized is the spouse, son, daughter, mother, or father of the notary public." (Section 117.107(11).

No you cannot notarize your mother, father, spouse, son or daughter's signature in accordance with the notary laws of the state of Florida.
