Leather Dupris, Notary Public
Commonwealth of Massachusetts
As a notary public for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I offer my notary services to individuals and businesses in the Salem and Essex County region and surrounding areas. If you are in need of a notary public, please call me at 978-744-5583 to set up an appointment and discuss what type of notary service you may need (new laws apply). You will need to have a Massachusetts Drivers License or Massachusetts State Issued Identification with a picture ID and current, up-to-date address information for verification requirements. All notarizations are recorded in a Notary Journal with your signature and thumb print.

On December 19, 2003, Governor Mitt Romney signed Executive Order 455 (04-04) mandating comprehensive new rules of conduct for all Massachusetts Notaries. Notaries commissioned before December 19 have 90 days - with a deadline of April 19, 2004 - to comply with all of these new rules. Notaries commissioned after December 19 must comply with all of the new rules immediately. See FAQ: New Standards for Notaries Public .
Every notarization you perform will be affected. Among the numerous new requirements for Notaries:
- Keep a record of all notarizations in a permanently bound book or "journal".
- Apply new definitions of "satisfactory evidence of identity" and "personal knowledge of identity" in screening signers.
- Use new certificate wording in notarizing all acknowledgements, jurats, signature witnessings and certified copies.
- Use a seal of office containing stipulated components, including a facsimile of the Great Seal of Massachusetts.
With these changes in mind, if you are a notary public in Massachusetts, be sure to check your new guidelines before notarizing a document. If you are a client needing a notary, be sure to have your document prepared with the new changes included in the section that needs to be notarized. See Massachusetts Notary Public Changes, 2004 for detailed information.
These acknowledgements have been revised to meet the new Massachusetts criteria for notarization as of 2004.
