Law

NV Assembly Bill 482

Notary Law Update: NV Assembly Bill 482

State: Nevada

Summary:

AB 482 revises certain requirements for Notaries wanting to perform marriages or a single marriage ceremony.

Signed:  May 16, 2019

Effective:  July 01, 2019

Chapter: 84

Affects:

Amends sections 19.016, 122.060 and 122.064 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.

Changes:
  1. Authorizes a county clerk to charge a $5 fee for the filing of a certificate of permission to perform marriages or a specific marriage.
  2. Requires a Notary who applies with the county clerk to perform marriages or a single marriage to take a course offered by the county clerk and to pay the fee required for the course, if the county clerk has a course.
Analysis:

In recent years Nevada enacted a law permitting Notaries to perform marriage ceremonies. The qualification of such Notaries to perform marriages is done by the county clerks throughout Nevada. AB 482 requires a Notary wanting to apply to perform marriage ceremonies to take a course and pay the fee for the course, if the county clerk offers one. In addition, the bill also authorizes the county clerk to charge the Notary $5 for issuing a certificate of permission to perform marriages or a specific marriage.
