Getting married comes with a lot of changes. Many include changing legal documents and making things under both individuals’ names that way they share everything. When documents become changed, there may be instances in which the document needs to be notarized.
Nevada Marriage Officiant Public Notary
In Nevada, notaries can officiate marriages as well. In other states, this may not be the case. Several states do not allow notaries to officiate marriages.
Which is convenient for a lot of people who may be eloping and cannot find someone willing to witness the wedding. It may also be convenient for individuals who do not want to use some random person to witness the wedding. Instead, they only need the notary who can take the place of both positions.
Steps For A Notary To Become A Wedding Officiant
As a wedding officiant and possibly as the marriage witness, the duties of the notary are to confirm the date and location of the ceremony, along with the names of the individuals who were involved in the ceremony.
- The notary may only be a wedding officiant if they are in good standings with the state of Nevada.
- The notary must also complete a certificate of Permission to Perform Marriages application.
- The certificate will stay relevant until the notary’s commission expires. Once this happens, the certificate will then also expire.
Although notaries will need to have all their documents and application notarized, they are not authorized to notarize the document themselves. Although, they would be allowed to notarize other applicant’s legal documents.
