Town of Rocky Hill Notary Services
NOTARY SERVICES for most documents are provided in the Rocky Hill Town Clerk’s Office during office hours.
DOCUMENTS WE CANNOT NOTARIZE:
Because of the potential liability, there are certain documents that cannot be notarized by Rocky Hill Town employees. They are:
- Any document that may be recorded on the Rocky Hill land records
- Power of Attorney forms
- Living Wills
- I-9 Employment Verification forms
There are other local providers who may have more flexibility as to what types of documents they can notarize. See Other Service Provider information below.
COST: $5 per notary stamp. As a courtesy, Rocky Hill residents will receive one notary stamp at no charge.
DOCUMENTS RELATED TO PASSPORTS/VISAS: As notaries for the Town of Rocky Hill, we do not certify the authenticity of copies of documents. Therefore, it is suggested that a written statement be made on each copy. The statements can then be treated like affidavits and notarized. Suggested language follows:
I, [INSERT NAME], solemnly swear that this is a true and accurate copy of [INSERT DETAILED DOCUMENT DESCRIPTION].
To reduce time at the counter, it is requested that passport/visa documents be prepared for notarizing (statements written on each page) prior to visiting our office, and that you arrive no later than 4:00 p.m. to allow time for processing. Please remember that the purpose of the notary public is to witness the signing of the documents, so do not sign the documents until you appear in person.

Additionally, from time to time the Town Clerk's office is not available to notarize documents. Notice will be posted on our door. Use of other providers of notary services around town can be sought during these times.
