Colorado Notarial Certificate – Certifying a Copy of a Record

The Colorado notarial certificate (certifying a copy of a record) is a legal instrument completed by a notary public or public official stating that a photocopied document is an exact reproduction of the original. A notary public may not certify photocopies of certain vital records (e.g., divorce decree, marriage certificate, death certificate, birth certificate). To obtain certified copies of these documents, a request must be made with the public official where the original is kept.

Note: The notarial certificate available on this webpage meets the requirements outlined in the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts, applicable as of July 1, 2018.
