I live in a state without a philosophical exemption. The religious exemption requires a public notary signature - how do I go about getting one? My daughter has all but varicella, at which point we stopped vaxing (#2 is unvaxed).<br><br>
Thoughts on how to approach this? Or experience with a similar situation?<br><br>
Thanks.

Most banks have a notary. Just go to the reception desk and ask for a "Notary Public". You probably will have to pay the notary a couple of dollars or so.<br><br>
You bring out the papers with your statement, have a photo ID or two, and sign in front of them. They sign a statement that they witnessed you signing and they put a stamp on the document. No biggie. Here in NY, the fee is $2 per notarizing.

to get a public notery sigg..we just went up to the bank...no questions asked <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
...that was for ds's birth certificate though...posted same time as above poster...eta we didnt have to pay anything<br><br>
...we used a "Parent/Gardian immunization Exemption" for dd and school...it was just a little health department made card, that says you object to the following vaxes...and list them all with a box you can check for any or all of them...it doesnt need any sigg but your own on it...we are in missouri... so im not sure if your state has one like this...no one told us about it we actually ordered the religous one and they put a few of each kind in as well...<br><br>
hey i just saw you are in the midwest...missouri?...if so i can send you a card..i think we have a couple.

Thanks! No, I'm in Nebraska. I suppose it's probably as simple as it seems - sign that you don't believe in vaxing, and they've got the record and that's that. But my wild imagination has conjured up these images of the state coming after me - it happens, right?<br><br>
Thanks for the info on notaries. It sounds pretty simple. (I hope I hope I hope!)

I thought it should be that simple...but there seems to be an overwhelming strength that believes you must vax...even though as far as i know you cant be forced at this time, it is definatly made to be a total bugger to get an exemption! no one will tell you its simple because I think most officials and actually most people in genral believe its law...so they never thought about it and its definatly not advertised that you have a choice...and thats what makes it complicated <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I am a notary, but I don't charge. The maximum allowed notary fee in New York is $2.00, but some notaries charge less than that.<br><br>
There is typically a maximum allowed fee in every state and it's very minimal.
