What is a Notary Public?

A notary public is a commissioned representative of a state government and is charged with verifying your identity as the signer, ensuring you sign under your own free will, and witnessing the signing event. A Notary's role is to prevent fraud and to ensure the appropriate people execute documents freely. Institutions rely upon notaries so they may have full faith in important documents. After witnessing a signing, a notary public applies their own details, such as their signature, seal, and notary commission details. These materials serve as a means of verifying the transaction so others may rely upon it. When you see a notary’s seal on a document, it means a trusted notary public represents that it is authentic and properly executed. Notaries can notarize a variety of documents, but all documents do not require notarization. Please send us an email if you have any questions.

How much does it cost to notarize a document?

Our fees are based on distance traveled and the number of signatures notarized. Most Notarized charges $10 for the first signature notarized, $5 for additional pages, and a small travel fee if we're traveling to your location. For traveling notary services the price begins at $5 for Detroit residents ($1.25 per addtional mile) Travel fees are required as a deposit. Please email for quotes. Please be advised, the pricing of a notary varies from state to state. In Michigan, the price of a notary is $10 per document. Most banks will notarize for free if they are open, and if the notary is available at that time.

Why get something notarized?

The Notary Public officiates at the signing and insures that the documents are signed correctly. The notary makes sure that the signers are entering into agreements knowingly and willingly. It is required by law for certain documents to be notarized or to have an impartial witness to the signing. Some businesses request notarization to feel more confident that the signer indeed did sign the document requested.

Officiant Questions

What do I need to get married in Michigan?

In order to get married in Michigan, couples must apply in person or online, with current valid driver's license or state I.D. to obtain a marriage license from the County Clerk of the COUNTY in which either applicant resides. The marriage license fee is $20.00 for residents of Michigan. $30 for non-residents. Along with your I.D you will also need certified copies of your birth certificates. There is a three (3) day waiting period in Michigan. The waiting period does not include the application day.
Bring your copies of your blank marriage licenses to your ordained minister ahead of time or the day of your wedding. Also bring two witnesses unless noted that witnesses will be provided for signing your marriage liscense. Marriage licenses are valid for 33 days from the date of issuance. You must get married within thirty days. If you don't have your wedding within the required time frame, you will have to apply for another marriage license and pay the fee again. ***Don't wait until the last minute to apply for your marriage license. We recommend that you get your marriage license about a month before your scheduled wedding date. After a couple is married and after the marriage certificate is signed by the bride and groom and their witnesses, your officiant files the marriage license with the local government authority that issued your license. With this registration process, the marriage becomes part of the public record. A marriage certificate is then issued and usually a certified copied is to be ordered by the recently married couple. For more information visit your countys vital record website.
