Why do I need this bond?
Oklahoma notary bonds exist to protect the general public and the state from a notary public’s mistakes, negligence and misuse of the notary stamp and signature. If a notary fails to adhere to the terms of the surety bond contract, a claim can be filed against the bond. If the claim is proven in a court of law, the surety will reimburse the harmed parties up to the full bond amount, and the notary will be responsible for reimbursing the surety for damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Oklahoma notary public bonds remain valid for four years from the effective date. Applicants must know their commission number and the term dates as dictated by the state before they can be bonded.
The completed bond form and a $10 fee must be filed with the office of the Secretary of State in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
