About Us

The Delaware Notary Association is the State of Delaware’s #1 website dedicated to the Professional and Casual Delaware Notaries Public.  It was created and commenced in April, 2010.

This website is dedicated to serve the Delaware Notary Public with education, supplies, and opportunities to network their notarial experiences and skills and keep up to date about current Notary information since the State of Delaware does NOT currently provide any type of notary public education.  The Delaware Notary Association website is a separate entity from the State of Delaware.

My name is Michael Ashley.  I have been a Delaware Notary Public since May, 1999.  I am a current member of the American Association of Notaries (AAN), AmericanSociety of Notaries (ASN).

Upon becoming a Notary Public here in Delaware, I successfully completed some basic and advanced course offerings from some of the leading notary public organizations.  These were wonderful BASIC study courses.  In addition I keep current with the State of Delaware Notary Public laws.  This has made me very aware of what are the authorized duties a Notary Public can and cannot perform in Delaware.  It is very important to stay up to date with the State of Delaware notary laws that can be found on the State of Delaware website. The Delaware Notary Association expands beyond the Basic notary information found and narrows in specifically to what the Delaware notary can perform.

You can view the current Notary Public laws on the State of Delaware by typing the following: Then click on Delaware laws.

It is my first goal that the Delaware Notary Association be a local association for the Notaries Public of Delaware.   When documents are notarized by the Delaware Notary Public, the client and public can be assuredthat the signer has been properly identified, and any receiving party can be assured that the document has been signed properly. 

Secondly, we can to encourage and promote the Delaware Notary Public has the Expertise and Exposure needed to provide the public with the best notarization possible. 

The third goal is to promote the Delaware Notary Public by marketing their professional expertise to the public.  There are individuals,businesses and corporations looking for a Delaware Notary Public.  The clients may come from outside the State of Delaware but still need their services; whether it be notarizing a paper document or notarizing a document electronically.  You can include you information on the website to promote your exposure as a notary. Please check out the “Notary Listing” on the Notary Association website.

This association can also provide a “Delaware Notary Public Reference Network”.  This is where Delaware Notaries Public can share their notary experiences, knowledge, questions, or comments with other notaries.  I can broadcast this information on the website for all to take notice.

This is a place where you can ask your notarial questions, raise your concerns, share your experiences and knowledge so no one needs to reinvent the wheel.  We, your Delaware Notary Association will do our best to get you the best and most accurate answers or procedures as it relates to the Delaware notarial law. This form dialog is very important and beneficial to all members.  These topics will then be placed on our website to share with all Delaware Notaries. The Delaware Notary Association can provide general opinions/comments.  If you have a specific detailed question on how to proceed on a specific issue you can contact the State of Delaware notary public office at (302)739-4111.  The person who answers the phone can give you your detailed answer to proceed.
