Notary Service

Free notary services are available for individuals at the Madison, Main, and Plymouth locations,  by appointment only. Appointments may be made Monday – Friday 9 AM-4 PM. (Based on availability.) Call the location to make an appointment. 

Notaries adhere to the Ohio Revised Code: Section 147. Ohio law requires that the person signing the document to be notarized must appear in person and present identification. The document must be presented in its entirety. The document to be notarized must be filled out in its entirety and must have no blank spaces. 

Due to limited resources, notary services are for individuals only. No business documents are accepted for notary service, nor will notary services be performed for any business organization.
