Declaration of Domicile

Declaration of Domicile


Legal residency in Florida is a requirement throughout your commission. If you move out of Florida during your commission, you must resign your commission in writer to the Governor’s Office. To prove your legal residency as part of your notary application or renewal application, you must provide a Declaration of Domicile.

What is a Declaration of Domicile?

A Declaration of Domicile is a document you file with the court to show that you currently live in Florida and intend to remain living in Florida. You must state in the document whether you have another home or residence in another state or country.
