Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of notary services?
The fee is $5 for each "notarial act" (each time the notary uses his stamp). This fee is set by the State of Connecticut. 
It would be illegal for a notary to charge more than $5 per notarial act.
Can I pay by check or credit card?
Please pay in cash. I do not accept personal checks.
I now have a credit/debit card reader, so you can use a card for payment - but I must collect a 5% surcharge (an extra 25 cents on a typical document) to make up for the processing fee.
What identification do I need to bring with me?
In order to have your signature notarized, you must provide two forms of identification, both of which must contain your signature. 
One form must be government-issued ID with a photograph (driver license, passport, or state-issued ID card).
A credit card or work ID may serve as your second form of ID, but only if it contains your signature.
A social security card may not be used for ID.

I need an apostille. Can you help with that?

Where else can I get documents notarized?
If you have an account with a local bank, you can take your documents to any bank branch. In general, any time a branch is open, there is a notary there who will notarize your documents at no charge. Note: most banks refuse to notarize wills. 
If I can get my documents notarized at my bank for free, why would I bring them to you?
Good question! Your bank is a better value, so I encourage you to go there if possible.
