In Alabama, the fees a notary can charge are regulated by state law. Typically, a notary can charge up to $5 for taking an acknowledgment or administering an oath. Additional fees may apply for other services, such as certifying copies, taking affidavits, or performing marriage ceremonies. It's important to remember that these fees are the maximum allowed, and individual notaries may choose to charge less or even offer their services for free. Always inquire about the cost beforehand to avoid surprises and ensure you're getting a fair price for the service needed.
