How to make a notary letter
( Images)

In the U.S., a notary public acts as an official witness to the signing of important documents and letters. You may need a notary public to witness your signature to prove you have signed a letter, such as a consent form or permission slip relating to your child's school. A notarised letter states essential facts and provides spaces for both the letter writer and the notary to add their signatures in each other's presence.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Type your letter as you would any formal letter, with your own address in the top right; the recipient's name and address next, on the left; and the day and date next, on the right.

  2. 2

    Explain the necessary facts clearly and concisely in the letter. It may consist of one or more simple statements. For example: "I give permission for my son, David Andrew Jones, to attend the State Athletic Championships on Friday 13 to Monday 16 April 2010."

  3. 3

    Type your name and role, such as "Parent/Guardian," at the end of the letter, leaving room above for your signature.

  4. 4

    Type "Sworn to and signed before me, a notary public, this day of in the year ___," underneath the letter, leaving blank spaces large enough for the notary to mark the day, month and year.

  5. 5

    Type "Notary Public in and for the county of , state of ," leaving space for the notary to add the county and state.

  6. 6

    Type "Notary Public Signature and Seal," leaving about four lines above for the notary to add his signature and stamp.

  7. 7

    Print the letter and take it to your notary public. Sign it in her presence and ask her to sign and seal the letter where indicated.
