A Notarial Officer is a person commissioned by our Office to perform notarial acts in New Mexico, the most common of which is to witness and attest to the authentic signing of documents. The responsibilities of Notarial Officers are essential to the functioning of legal, business, financial, and real estate transactions. The pages on this portion of our website can be used as resources to stay up-to-date on current Notary law in New Mexico, find answers to common questions using our FAQ pages, renew Notarial Officer commissions, and much more.
