Notaries & Dedimus Just
Notary Public’s primary duty is to formally witness transactions involving paper documents. Maine Notaries can officiate at weddings. Only Maine adult residents can become a Maine Notaries Public. Persons wishing to have any document notarized at Bangor City Hall must provide proper identification.
Dedimus Justices perform a single function under Maine statute, that of swearing in various public officials, including Notaries Public. The office is a lifetime appointment by the Governor, but the application form is available from and the paperwork managed by the Notary Office in the Bureau of Corporation, Elections and Commission.
The office of Justice of the Peace was merged into that of Notary Public between 1981 and 1988.
