Apostille Information from the State of Illinois
Certified copies of McLean County documents such as marriage and birth records are available from the County Clerk's office, but if the documents are for foreign use, they may require additional certification in the form of an apostille. The State of Illinois is the apostille authority. For more concise information, please see the State's Apostille Brochure. Here is a link to the Apostille Application form for your convenience.
Notary and Other Services - County Clerk's Office
Payment is by cash or check only for the following services:
The County Clerk offers notarization services for $1 per signature notarized. However, we do not notarize anything of a political nature or anything that is to be recorded in McLean County. Your document must have a notary certificate statement included, or leave at least two inches blank so that we may apply the notary certificate with a stamp. Per Statute, we cannot notarize documents without the certificate wording. Anyone whose signature is to be notarized on a document must present an official photo ID unless they are personally known to the notary.
Certificates of Authority
If you require a certificate of authority for a McLean County notary, the fee is $2 per certificate. We suggest that you make sure that your notary public resides in McLean County by searching their name on the State's Notary Public Search site before you come in to the office. We cannot certify notaries from a different county.
I-9 Verification by Authorized Representative
Call ahead for availability. You must present written authorization by the verifying employer. We must see your original I-9 document(s). The charge for this service will be a $1 copy charge.
