Becoming a Notary Public Online

Most of what you need to do to become a notary public can be done online. This is great news. It's also great news that you can become a notary public in a quick amount of time. However, you need to find out the exact requirements for your state. The first thing you need to find out is your state's eligibility requirements to be a notary public. This is usually that you are a citizen of the United States, you can prove your date of birth, and you need to be a resident of the state you intend to practice your trade. The following are a few of the basics that you will need.

 You will need a bond 

This bond is not the same for every state, but whatever the amount is in your stat, you will be able to purchase it online. It will need to be from a company that is recognized in your state. This bond is to protect the public in case you make a mistake that costs an individual or company money.

You will need to apply 

This is only a matter of filling out an application. Once again, this can be done online. You will have to pay a fee that is usually paid at the time you file. In some states you may be able to pay online, but some states require you to take an oath in person, and this is when you will pay the fee.

You need to get supplies 

Each state will have their own time frame when they notify you of your approval, but the worst case will be 30 days. After this, you will need certain supplies. The most important is a notary seal, but you also should get a notary book to record all of your transactions. Some states require this, but if you are living in a state that does not have such a requirement, you should consider getting one anyway. It is simply the professional thing to do. You can buy a notary stamp and seal package online.

You can become a notary public quickly and you can do so over the internet.
