Notary Commission Recording
The Clerk of Courts records notary commissions, and keeps them on file. The cost to record a notary commission is $5.00 ($1.00 extra if we administer the oath in our office).
- Notary commissions must be recorded in the notary's county of residence.
- Notary commissions are recorded in the General Division
- Notary commissions can be submitted to any Auto Title Branch, and will be forwarded to the General Division for recording.
You can verify if a notary is registered in Franklin County in our General Division. Fee for verification is $2.00/each.
Verifications can also be completed by mail. Send a copy of the notarized document, a self-addressed stamped envelope, and $2.00 (check or money order only) per verification to:
