Find a Notary Near Me in Michigan

If you need to have a document notarized in Michigan, it can be challenging to find a notary public. Notaries are found in a variety of places, but it can be difficult to know where to start. In this guide, we'll provide tips and tricks for finding a notary in Michigan, so you can get your important documents notarized quickly and easily. From searching online directories to checking with friends and family, we'll cover all the bases to help you find a reliable notary public in Michigan.

Five Ways to Find a Michigan Notary Near Me

1- Ask for recommendations from friends and family.

Your friends or family  may have had positive experiences with a notary and can provide valuable insight.

2- Visit your local bank.

Banks typically have at least one notary working for them, and if you have an account at the bank, they may provide you with notary services for free. If you need a mobile notary, however, or don’t have a bricks-and-mortar bank, you’ll want to choose another option for finding a Michigan notary public.

3- Check with local government agencies.

Notaries are public officials commissioned by Michigan, so you can find one online at the Michigan Department of State’s website.  

4- Visit a packaging store.

Packaging stores provide mailing, shipping, printing, and copying services, but they also often have notaries on hand to notarize your documents for a fee.

5- Use the American Association of Notaries Michigan Notary Locator Tool

This last and most thorough option will be explained further in the next section.
