(1) A notary public with a change of name under ORS 33.410 (Jurisdiction) to 33.440 (Application by minor child) or otherwise may continue to use the current commissioned name until the expiration date of the commission. If the notary, however, wishes to use the new name in performing a notarial act, the notary must apply for an amended commission by completing a Change of Name Form and submitting the required fee for amended commission, as adopted by rule. The Secretary of State shall send an amended notarial commission to the person appointed, together with a Certificate of Authorization with which the notary shall obtain a new seal, the new seal to be as described under ORS 194.031 (Notarial seal).

(2) If a notary public whose name is changed does not wish to change the commission to the new name, the notary public shall, in any case, within 30 days after the change is effective, mail or deliver a notice of name change to the Secretary of State. The notice shall include the old name and the new name. [1989 c.976 §14]
