A notary in Wisconsin is someone who is licensed by the state to witness signatures on documents. Witnessing signatures helps to deter and prevent fraud.
To become a licensed Wisconsin notary, you must:
The state also requires you to file a $500 Wisconsin notary bond as a condition of licensing.
The Wisconsin notary bond is $500 surety bond. The notary bond is paid just one time for the term of your 4-year commission.
The cost to you is just $50.00 for the duration of your term.
The state of Wisconsin has also provided you with a Consumer Alert which should be read before purchasing a notary bond from our agency or any other company.
This alert is for your benefit and protection.
The Wisconsin notary bond, while required of you as a notary, is for the protection of consumers --- those for whom you perform notarial acts.
The surety bond is a guarantee, on the behalf of the consumer, that you will conduct your notary acts and procedures in accordance with all Wisconsin laws.
The bond protects the public from acts of negligence and malfeasance which cause harm; it is not for the protection of you as a licensed Wisconsin notary, nor is it a type of liability insurance policy on your behalf.
