Effective today, you won’t need it anymore.

As part of the overhaul of our procedural rules in 2015, most notary requirements were eliminated– affidavits, discovery responses, petitions. (If you were at Family Law Institute you’d already know this.)

All except for one: Stipulated Judgments and Decrees, which still had to be notarized under Minn. R. Gen. Prac. 308.04.

No more.

As of today, Rule 308.04 is amended to allow for the same penalty-of-perjury declaration as any other sworn statement.

So congratulations. Take that $120 you would have spent renewing your notary commission and treat yourself.
