Does anyone know what the typical cost is to notarize a divorce document in Poland? I'd find out myself but I dont speak polish.

If you mean to have the document translated into Polish using a sworn translator and then to have that document registered by the Courts and then in USC in Poland, the cost varies.

Please explain fully why you need your divorce document notarized.

My wife and I have come up with a post-nup agreement. Its all in polish. I was told that this document needs to be notarized, a sworn translation aswell, so that the eventual court hearing is just a formality.

This is completely different to what I originally thought.
What you mean to say is that the document that you have constructed between you has to go to a notariusz. There are many in all towns in Poland. Prior to that you will have to have the document translated for you by a sworn translator into English, so that you know exactly what you are signing as you will sign a document in the Polish language. The notariusz will then do an official Polish document which you will have to sign and date and he will witness you placing your signature on it. You will be asked for forms of ID - passport or such documents. He may use the document you have as long as it's not written on the back of a cigarette packet. You will then have to pay him (say about 200 pln for his time). The notariusz will then send the document to the Court anyway. You can and should then lodge the document with the Court. This is all to protect you as you do not speak Polish and you must know what you are signing.

Thanks terri. I have been quoted 2200zl for the notary cost + sworn translation fees. Thoughts?

A little bit/very steep. This is not rocket science and cannot understand why they are asking so much.

I recently had 6 pages of business documents translated from English to Polish. Cost of translation was 100 pln per page. Notary fee was minimal and separate person.
