Notary Public Services

The Secretary of the State’s Office in Hartford issues Notary Public commissions.

Notary certificates from the Secretary of the State are recorded at the Town Clerk’s office in the town where you reside. The recording fee is $20.00. All fees are payable by cash or check.

You may also record your commission in the town where you do business, but this is not mandatory, and requires another $10.00 recording fee to that town. If a notary’s signature needs to be certified by the Town Clerk in the town where the commission is recorded, there is a $2.00 fee for the certification of signature.
