Coming Soon: New Online Notary Filing System & Payment Changes

The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) is creating a new online notary filling system that will be available in summer 2022.

Starting on May 13, 2022, online payments for notary applications will not be available. All notary applications must be paid for with a check or money order when the application is mailed, or delivered, to the DFI until the new system is in place in summer 2022.

If a notary application was paid online before May 13, 2022, then the application must be received by the DFI by June 3, 2022; otherwise, the payment will be refunded.

For questions, please email DFINotary@dfi.wisconsin.gov or call (608) 266-8915. Thanks!
