As a courtesy to the residents of Orange, the Town Clerk's Office provides some free notary public services during office hours. Non-residents will be charged a fee of $5 per stamp. Our procedure is that the Town Clerks and all other Town employees who are notary publics will notarize most documents with the proper proof of identification.
Because of the liability, we have been advised by the state and Town Counsel not to notarize wills, living wills, power of attorney forms, estate and trust documents, I-9 employment verification, and any document that will be recorded on the Town of Orange Land Records including documents related to that recording.
Remember, the purpose of a Notary Public is to witness the signing of said document, so do not sign anything 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.
