REMOTE ONLINE NOTARY
WHAT IS REMOTE ONLINE NOTARIZATION (“RON”)?
Remote Online Notarization (RON) is the process of conducting live audio and video calls via the internet to notarize legal documents performed by a state approved commissioned notary.
The name “Remote Notary” derives from the fact the notary services the customer remotely. A remote notary is a legally commissioned notary public who is authorized to conduct notarizations over the internet via digital tools and in a real time audio video call. Historically, notarization required that the notary and the signer meet in person where the notary serves as a witness during the signing event.
In 2012, Virginia became the first state to have online remote notarization over live audio video calls. Fast forward 8 years, Florida is now one of the approved states to perform online notarization as of January 1, 2020. This new law has empowered notaries to perform notarization not only nationwide, but internationally. Along with the notarization service comes the strict requirements for ID verification, tamper proofing and document retention that actually makes remote notarization safer and more reliable than a standard in person notarization. The next time you are looking for a remote notary near me or an online notary near me, remember that NOTARIZE IN REAL TIME can be your notarization company. Call us today at 954-278-9832.
