Other Things to Know:

  • Notaries are regulated by Illinois law. We will not notarize documents that do not follow such laws and regulations. Notaries will not prepare or complete documents for you, nor can they give legal advice on a matter.
  • In accordance with Illinois law, Notaries will not provide service if the document or circumstances of the request for Notary Service raise any issues of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for SMRLD. In this event, the Notary may at his/her sole discretion, decline to provide Notary Service.
