Notaries Public do everything the same, but different.
LIMITED Availability and Area. Existing clients & referrals by appointment only. $5 per notarization is the Connecticut maximum statutory fee, which is also the copy certification maximum fee (notaries are not allowed to charge a per page fee).
For NOTARY PUBLIC SERVICES SEE alsoTown Clerks, local Senior Services Center, Financial & Banking offices, Law firms, Accounting firms, Real Estate offices, and school registrars offices. There are over 50,000 notaries public in Connecticut, plus CT attorneys and Judges can also notarize documents.
Notaries are not required by law to travel. The CT Secretary of State set the maximum notary travel fee at 35 cents per mile, which is much LESS than the IRS business mileage tax deduction rate.
A Connecticut notary is NOT a Notario Publico, Notaire, attorney, lawyer or judge and has no authority to give legal advice on real estate, immigration, wills, trusts or any legal matter.
Notary Education. Notaries have unlimited personal financial liability for every notarization, which is why notaries do not "bend the law." By law, a Connecticut notary must identify a signer with two forms of current identification. Employers can be liable for notary-employee errors.
