How To Get A Notary Signature Certified

The notary would need to have completed the application process in Fayette County. The notary must sign exactly the same way as they signed on their commission paperwork (i.e.- signed as Mary J. Smith, cannot notarize as M. Jane Smith).

The notary must include an acknowledgement statement identifying the signatory and the date of the document, and this statement must be written in English. The body of the document can be in another language.  As of January 1, 2020, a notary may also certify that a document is a 'true and correct copy'.

You must bring in the document that the notary has signed. If the notary's signature is illegible, you must be able to tell us the name so we can locate the record to verify the signature.

The fee is $5 per notary signature that we certify.
