To become a notary public, applicants must file a notary bond in person at our office.  Applicants must be residents of Genesee County and must present:

  • and valid state issued driver's license or identification card (must show current residential address)

The fee to file a notary bond is $10.00.  Our office accepts payment in the form of CASH, CHECK, CREDIT or DEBIT.  If presenting a personal check, the check must be drawn on a Genesee County bank, the person signing the check must be present and must provide valid photo ID.  The name and address imprinted on the check must match the ID.  If paying by credit/debit, there is an additional service fee in the amount of $2.50 for transactions totaling less than $50.00.

After filing the bond with our office, the applicant will mail the application to the Office of the Great Seal with an additional $10.00 fee.
