I am trying to file my oath by mail and I was asked to mail a "letter requesting a conformed copy of the bond." I am not sure what that is?E.L., California

A conformed copy of the bond is an official copy of the bond after it has been recorded.  To request a conformed copy of your bond, write or type on a piece of paper the following: “Please send a conformed copy of my bond for confirmation of filing.”  There is no special form or format. Be sure to sign, date and include your contact information. Also, include a self-addressed stamped envelope so the conformed copy of the bond may be sent to you.

For step-by-step guidelines for the Notary commission process in other states and a helpful video, please see our page “How to Become a Notary” in the NNA Notary Knowledge Center. You can also get assistance starting the commissioning process in your state by calling our Customer Care team at 1-800-876-6827.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
