Notary Public Service

Notary Public Services are provided at no charge by authorized township staff during the hours of 9:00 am – 4:00pm. No appointment is necessary, but it is highly recommended to call in advance to confirm the notary is available.

Please remember the following:

  • Bring a valid, US government issued photo ID with you.
  • The person who will sign the document must make sure the document is filled out, leaving no blanks other than where the individual will sign the document before the Notary. Notaries may not notarize any document with blank spaces.
  • Documents signed in advance WILL NOT be notarized. Copies of documents WILL NOT be notarized.
  • If your document requires witnesses as well as your own signature and notarization, you must bring with you enough people willing to serve as your witnesses. Township staff will not serve as witnesses. Witnesses may not be solicited at the township. To serve as a witness, the witness must be personally known to the individual whose document is being notarized and must be in possession of valid photo identification.
  • Notaries are regulated by the Illinois Notary Law and will not notarize documents that do not follow such laws and regulations. Notaries are not authorized to prepare or complete documents for others, nor give legal advice on any matter relating to a document. Notaries will not provide services if the document or circumstances of the request for Notary Services raise any issues of authenticity, ambiguity, doubt, or uncertainty for the Township. In this event, the notary may decline to provide notary services.
  • Notary services are not guaranteed.

Documents related to the following areas will NOT be notarized:

  • USCIS Government Form I-9
  • Employment Eligibility Verification
  • Documents of conveyance of real estate, mortgages, titles, other real estate loans, documents or transactions or property transfers including but not limited to refinancing or other types of real estate loans, purchases, sales and beneficial interests in land trusts and deeds.
  • Documents related to international travel particularly involving children.
  • Parental consent forms.
  • Documents in any language other than English.
  • Wills, living wills, living trusts, powers of attorney, codicils, or depositions as these types of documents can require technical or legal knowledge that is beyond the scope of this free service.

If you need legal advice, please consult an attorney. The notary is prohibited from assisting in the preparation, completion, and/or explanation of legal documents.

For any questions, please call 847.816.6800.
