Are you conducting an important transaction or making an affirmation that affects your life or business? Whether you’re buying a car or signing a will, if you’re completing these acts in Colorado, you’ll need a notary seal, signature, or certificate to make your documents legal.
A missing attestation from a notary public will render any documents invalid in court. You could have already paid to get a used car, but if you haven’t used a notary service to legitimize your ownership paperwork, you could run into problems when you need to verify the transaction.
To avoid issues like this with important documents, contact a notary public in Colorado. Notaries provide state-sanctioned services for different types of transactions and documents. Whether it’s a business deal or a legal matter, they can ensure your documents are official.

Your Colorado Mobile Notary
At some point, all of us will need to notarize a document. Whether it’s a personal or professional document, the notarization process helps ensure its legality.
The only professionals that can provide notary services are notaries public. These individuals have been trained and certified by the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, the state’s governing body for notaries.
A notary public ensures that any legally binding document is correctly drafted and that all parties understand the agreement they are entering into. Notarization is imperative to preventing fraud since notaries also verify the identity of every signer.
Once the notary has verified the validity of the document and the identity of the signers, they will certify it by placing a seal or signature on it or by issuing a notarial certificate.
But what documents can a professional notarize in Colorado Springs, Denver, Purple Peak Mountain, and other Colorado cities and towns?
According to the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA), notaries in Colorado can perform any of these notary services:
- Administration of Oaths and Affirmations
- Certified Copies
- Signature Witness or Attestation
- Noting a Protest of a Negotiable Instrument (for notaries employed by financial institutions)
You should note that notaries are not allowed to provide legal advice. They are not certified to practice law and are usually not associated with a law firm. However, an attorney licensed to practice law can take the notary exam and become an attorney notary.
When you need a notary service, you can try to make an appointment with someone at a USPS or UPS location—but availability is usually an issue. They only work during regular business hours, and getting an appointment that fits with your schedule can be tricky.
Relying on a mobile notary service can streamline the process, helping you get your documents notarized without any hassle.
When you hire a notary from Superior Notary Services, a professional notary comes to you wherever and whenever you need it. We provide a stress-free and convenient experience anytime you need a notary in Colorado.
All You Need to Know About Colorado Notaries
A Colorado notary public is certified and licensed by the Colorado Secretary of State or Attorney General. They go through a rigorous training program and have to pass their state exam and take an oath.
Keep in mind that every notary gets a temporary license, otherwise called an affirmation, and they have to renew it every few years. Notaries are also bound to provide services within their state and are not allowed to notarize documents outside of Colorado or in a foreign country.
Our Colorado notaries are all licensed to provide notary services at any signing location within the state.
Colorado Notary Facts
Here are some important facts you should know before hiring a Colorado notary public:
- In Colorado, people who are not U.S citizens but have permanent legal residence can become notaries. All they need is a residential address or employment in Colorado.
- Notaries in Colorado can provide services for any person or business if they do not have a conflict of interest. This means that a notary cannot provide services for their spouse, siblings, parents, children, or other family members.
- Colorado allowed remote online notarization in December 2020. Notaries must undergo additional training to get their remote online notarization license.
- Notaries are strictly prohibited from stating opinions. Outside of verifying signatures, copies, and identities, they shouldn’t in any way impact anyone’s sentiments. For example, a notary cannot make statements, such as “In my opinion, the person signing this document is doing so under free will.”
Colorado In-Office Fees
The RULONA sets the fees for Colorado notaries public. Notaries in Colorado can accept fees of up to $5 for in-person notarizations. Notaries can charge up to $10 for any electronic signatures or remote notarizations. Keep in mind that this is the stipulated fee for in-office notary services only.
If you are hiring a traveling notary, the notary can charge you more depending on the signing location and travel time or distance.

Colorado Notary Public Duties
The essential duties of a notary in Colorado are:
- Ensuring that the signers understand the contents of any document they are signing
- Verifying the identity of the signers through a valid ID card, such as a Colorado driver’s license
- Preventing fraud by ensuring signers are not under duress, intimidation, or coercion
If notaries suspect fraud or any illegal activity related to a document, they can refuse to notarize it and report it to authorities.
You should aim to work with experienced and professional notaries who are well-versed in Colorado laws and will make sure that all documents are in order before placing their seal or signature.
At Superior Notary Services, our notaries understand the notarization process and will act in the best interest of all signing parties according to Colorado law.

Frequently Asked Questions About Colorado Notary Services
- Is Electronic Notarization Allowed in Colorado?
Electronic notarization is allowed in the state of Colorado. In a situation where a notary has to provide electronic notarization services, a notary's basic duties and functions are still valid. Notaries are still upheld to the high standards of RULONA and have to ensure that no fraud or coercion is happening.
Because of the technological needs of electronic notarization, RULONA has additional requirements for the process. A notary public needs additional training and certification to be allowed to complete an electronic notarization.
- What Are the Rules on Remote Online Notarization in Colorado?
Remote notarization is allowed in Colorado. In this case, the notary and the signing parties are not in the same room. But, by using audio-video technology, a licensed notary can perform a notarial act.
Only certified professionals can register to become remote notaries. They need to take a course and pass an exam to get their remote notarization license from the Secretary of State.
Before taking on a remote notarization job, notaries must verify that the client can use audio-visual technology. They also must have consent to record the meeting, properly store it, and make it accessible.
The notary must complete all necessary duties as they would in an in-person notarization, such as verifying identities, ensuring understanding of the document's contents, and preventing fraud.
An essential distinction in remote notarization is that the notary must be in Colorado, but the client can be in a different state or a foreign country.
