How do I get something notarized?

My office generally has a notary on hand and the service is free to my clients. Banks also frequently provide free notary services to their customers.

Other options include the information desk on the first floor of the Travis County civil courthouse (1000 Guadalupe Street; call 512-854-9020 for more information) and mailbox and shipping stores such as The UPS Store. All of these services typically charge $6.

There are also mobile services that will send a Notary Public to your location but you will pay a premium for the convenience.

Regardless of where you go, you’ll need to provide a valid photo ID. It’s also a good idea to call ahead to ensure that a notary will be there and ask what forms of payment they accept.
