Remote Online Notarization (RON) is a digital technology process that allows an individual to sign documents electronically in the presence of a notary public without being physically present in the same location. The use of RON grew dramatically during 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which kept most of us isolated. As more people became familiar with the convenience of using innovative technology, the question we were often asked was, "Can my document be notarized online?"
Here is a list of the types of documents that can be notarized online using a notary public who is also commissioned for RON:
Real estate documents, such as deeds, mortgages, and lease agreements
Powers of attorney
Wills and trusts
Financial and banking documents, such as loans, promissory notes, and affidavits
Medical documents, such as healthcare directives and medical power of attorney
Business documents, such as articles of incorporation and partnership agreements
Documents for passports, visas, and immigration applications, such as authorizations for minors to travel, affidavits of support, or single status affidavits.
Remote notarization is a convenient and efficient way to have your documents notarized without leaving your home or office. However, ensuring that the remote notarization process is legal and valid in your state and that your document is eligible for remote notarization is important.
If you have any questions or concerns about remote notarization, it's always best to consult with a qualified notary public or legal professional.
