THIS IS MERELY AN EXAMPLE OF A PROTEST OF A BILL OF EXCHANGE UNDER NOTARY PUBLIC AND SHOULD NOT BE IMPLEMENTED IN PLACE OF SOUND LEGAL ADVICE FOR YOUR LEGAL PROBLEMS. ONE SHOULD SEEK LEGAL ADVICE FROM A (LICENSED) PROFESSIONAL WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF HIS/HER STATE CONCERNING HIS/HER LEGAL MATTERS.
This is a very simple protest for use as an example. Protests should be detailed with statutes, codes, and case laws in support of the Protestor’s position. The protest can raise any issue from a fact that the First Party did not in fact take a proper Oath of Office, or that the collective laws of his state are passed each year under the Restatement of the Laws by his state’s legislature in violation of the fundamental principles of Constitutional law on the proper procedure of how laws are to be enacted inclusive of the Governor’s signature and that the Legislature cannot, itself pass laws, to the argument that all Bills of Exchanges are equated to FRNs, which in fact do not pay debt only lawful tender pay debts. Your reasons for the protest will depend upon the events upon which the Bill of Exchange was drawn and how one believes the Bill violates certain principles of Law.
