County probate judges set their own rules and procedures for notary applicants that accompany the process set by state law. For more information on your county’s process, contact your county probate judge.
After you satisfy all county requirements, you can submit your completed application to your county probate judge. You will also need to pay a state application fee, which can range from $13 to $29. After receiving your application and payment, the judge will appoint you as a notary.
