Notary Services

 A Minnesota Notary Public can only attest to the identity of a person signing a document and therefore cannot "notarize" or "certify" a document.

What should I bring with me?

 Bring your completed, unsigned document, along with your valid state issued Driver's License or Identification Card.

Please Note:  We are unable to notarize and witness signatures on deeds, mortgage documents, wills and USCIS Form I-9.

How much does it cost to have a document notarized?

$5.00 per notary signature
