Once the state required application (with a legible copy of your IL driver's license/state ID) is received by our office we will review it to ensure everything is filled out properly and check for any errors. If there is anything missing or if errors are made we will contact you to make the corrections. Once we have the corrected application we will send it to the Secretary of State's office for processing.
All errors and corrections needed are requirements by the state, not us. We review your application to the best of our ability to ensure your application will be approved once sent to the state.
Once your application has been approved by the state you will receive your county letter and stamp. Please do not forget to pay the county fee, and obtain your certificate. The fee you paid us was for the state filing fee. The county fee is separate. Once you have your certificate in hand, you may use your new notary stamp and the process is complete. If you do not obtain your new certificate within 60 days, the state will cancel your commission.
If for some reason you do not receive your county letter within 2 to 3 weeks after you were commissioned, please be proactive and call your county clerk to receive your certificate. Please note: Everything is sent to the home address.
For any questions, please contact our office at (815) 455-4247 or email us at ILNotaryPublic@aol.com
