Notary Public Service
An Illinois notary public is authorized to perform notarial acts or “notarization” anywhere in the state. Notarial acts include taking an acknowledgment, taking a verification upon oath or affirmation, witnessing or attesting a signature, administering an oath or affirmation, and performing any other action authorized by law.
A notary public must positively identify the person requesting notarization. A notary has identification if the person:
- is personally known to the notary
- is identified upon the oath or affirmation of a credible witness personally known to the notary
- is identified based on identification documents
Our General Assistance staff and the Clerk's office are notaries certified, so we are always available to assist.
