As a notary public in the State of Kansas, you have UNLIMITED financial liability on EVERY document you notarize. If you are a notary for your employer, your employer could also be held liable for your mistakes. All too often people take the office of Notary Public lightly, which is a huge mistake. Even though your state does not require education, it could keep you out of trouble. The Kansas Online Notary Course is the fastest and easiest way for you to learn what to do and what not to do and how to protect yourself as a notary. Whether you are a new or current notary public in Kansas, you should spend some time learning the laws. The cost of this course is much less expensive than just 1 hour consulting an attorney.

   How to Become a Kansas Notary Public
  1. Complete the Online Kansas Notary Training Course
  2. Prior to submitting the form to the Secretary of State’s office, the applicant must obtain a good and sufficient bond to the state of Kansas in the sum of $7,500. The bond can either be obtained through a commercial surety – an insurance company or bonding company – or through personal sureties – two private individuals. The bond ensures that if a notary public fails to properly perform a notarization the surety will indemnify a third party for any damages caused by the notary’s negligence or misconduct.
  3. The applicant also must attach a clear and readable impression of his or her stamp on the application. To be accepted, the notary stamp must include the name of the applicant exactly as it appears on the application and the words “Notary Public” and “State of Kansas.” The stamp also may include a line for an expiration date; however, since the date is assigned by the secretary of state after the application is filed, we recommend that the actual date be left blank. Finally, the applicant must take the oath of office in front of a notary public, and the notary must complete the oath on the application and sign and affix his or her seal to the application.
  4. Once the Secretary of State’s office has received and accepted the application, a certificate, wallet card and Handbook will be mailed to the home address on the application. Until receipt of the certificate and wallet card, the applicant cannot notarize any documents.
  5. A Kansas notary's commission is good for four years. The certificate and wallet card will include the date that the notary’s commission expires. This date must be included in each notarization that the notary does to be a complete and legal notarization. The expiration date is determined by the date that the Secretary of State’s office files the application, not the date on the bond or the date the application is submitted to our office.
