To apply for a Notary, applicants need to obtain a Notary Bond. These can be purchased at most Insurance Agencies. Applications are available in the County Clerk's office or can be found on the link below. The bond and application is filed with the County Clerk in the County you reside. A fee of $10 will be required at the time of filing. Once filed with the County Clerk the application and another fee of $10 is then sent by the applicant to the State of Michigan.
