Essex County Outreach
The Essex County Clerk comes to Livingston once each month, usually the third Monday of the month.  When here, the Essex County Clerk’s office processes passport applications and administers the official oath for those any individual who meets the criteria and wants to become a Notary Public. Please note: Visit days can be subject to change at times; please call 973-992-5000 ext: #5404 to confirm.

A. Notary Public
Notary Services are available through the Township Clerk’s office at Town Hall for a fee of $2.50/page. You must show identification in order to receive Notary Services.
All documents to be notarized must be signed in front of the Notary.
Therefore, do not sign your documents in advance.

B. Passports
One of the biggest reasons the Essex County Clerk’s office visits Livingston is in order to process passport applications. It may take up to 6 weeks to actually receive your passport from the U.S. Department of State. We can fax fee information to you regarding passports, along with information regarding children’s passports:  who is required to be there, fees, requirements, etc.  The Essex County Clerk’s website has three links:

  1. new passports,
  2. passport renewal, and
  3. expediting the process
