Why do I need this bond?
Wyoming notary surety bonds protect the public from any wrongdoings committed by notaries public while on the job. Specifically, these bonds ensure that notaries comply with all rules and regulations of the state of Wyoming, including refraining from notarizing documents that have forged signatures or documents that benefit or include the notary in any way.
If a claim is filed against the bond, the bond protects the state and general public from financial loss up to the full bond amount. The notary, in turn, must reimburse the surety for all damages paid out.
What’s the fine print?
Wyoming notary bonds remain valid for 4 years. For this particular bond type, applicants must know the specific county in which notarial business will be conducted.
