The Notary Public serves as an impartial witness to the signing of documents, attests to the signature on the document, and may also administer oaths and affirmations. The State Treasurer appoints a notary public for a five-year period and may renew the appointment for five-year increments. Candidates, who must be New Jersey residents and are at least 18 years of age, are sworn into office by the clerk of the county in which the candidate resides. Complete information regarding New Jersey Notary Publics is provided in the notary manual.

After completing the application, which requires an endorsement from your State legislator, submit the document with payment to the Division of Revenue, Notary Public Unit , PO Box 452, Trenton, NJ 08646.

Expedited service is also available for an additional $15.00 fee. This service, which will ensure a processing time of 8 ½ business hours, may be requested either in person or by any overnight courier service other than the United States Postal Service. The address for expedited service requests is 33 West State Street, 5th Floor, Trenton, NJ 08608-1214, Attention - Notary Unit.
