Ariq Anjar Rachman, Dahlan, Suhaimi

Regarding the implementation of notary legal services in making authentic deeds, the notary is entitled to receive an honorarium for the legal services provided. Notaries as one of the public services do not receive an honorarium from the government based on the provisions of Article 5 paragraph (3) letter c 1 of Law Number 25 of 2009 concerning Public Services. Notaries receive honoraria based on the provisions stipulated in Article 36 paragraph (1) of Law Number 30 of 2004 concerning Notary Positions (hereinafter referred to as UUJN), which states that: "Notaries are entitled to receive honoraria for legal services rendered in accordance with their authority". Every certain legal action made in the form of an authentic deed by a notary is entitled to receive an honorarium. The calculation of the honorarium is based on the economic value and the sociological value of each authentic deed made by a notary. However, what about people who cannot afford notary fees, considering that the UUJN regulates that the public can be provided with free legal services. Article 37 paragraph (1) UUJN which states that: "Notaries are obliged to provide legal services in the field of notary free of charge to people who can't afford it". In practice, this provision becomes a complicated problem, because there is no further explanation regarding the provisions for the category of poor people to be given free notary legal services.

The sources of legal materials in this study are secondary data consisting of primary legal materials, secondary legal materials, tertiary legal materials and primary data in the form of interviews. as supporting data, analyzed qualitatively and concluded deductively.
