Step 2 - Purchase/Acquire a Notary Bond

A notary bond is somewhat like insurance for the public.  If you cause someone financial harm, then they can sue you and win a judgment.  If you do not have the means to pay the judgment, they can make claim to your bond.  While this is a rare occurrence, it is still a possibility if you do not know what you are doing or you knowingly break the law.  This bond is not insurance for you.  If you want personal protection, the best option is to know and understand the law and then E&O insurance would cover any honest mistakes.  We offer the required Arkansas Notary Public Bond on our website.  You can order it now.
