Colorado Notary Fee CRS 24-21-529(1)
Posted by ABC Legal Docs, LLC - Jerry Lucas of CO on 2/3/19 6:09pm Msg #602817
Colorado notary law CRS 24-21-529(1), Notary Fees: the notary fee must not exceed $5 for each document attested by a person before a notary, and must include all duties and functions required to complete the notarial act.

The law is poorly worded, causing confusion. It does not say $5 for each document notarized. So, if the document is attested by person 1 and also by person 2, that is two notarial acts administered, but is it one document attested or two documents attested?

The signers are signing slightly different documents. Signer 1 signs with no prior signature affixed, but Signer 2 is signing a modified document, with Signer 1's signature already affixed. Signer 2 might even sign at a different time and place on the same day, with a separate notarial certificate. Signer 2 might say, I am not an expert on this matter, but Signer 1 is more knowledgeable than me. If Signer 1 has signed it, as a pre-requisite, then I am willing to sign it.

The notary fee law ignores notarial acts where there is no signed document attested by a person before the notary, such as the notary making a certified copy, or the notary administering a verbal oath of office, or swearing in a witness for live testimony.

Over the years, I have found errors in the SOS information on their website, notary handbook, notary exam, notary training course, and answers given to notary questions. They sometimes give contradictory answers to the same question. So, I teach students to go directly to the notary law, not to the SOS information, and not to notary forums. If you ask the SOS a notary question, do it by email to keep a written record of their answer, not by phone call.
