Remote Online Notarization
What is Remote Online Notarization (RON)?
Remote online notarization (RON) refers to the process of having a state-licensed notary public notarize a document remotely through the use of electronic signature, identity verification, audio-visual and electronic notarial technologies. This process is normally conducted via an online video chat software, following a prior identification verification of the signee.
Is a Remote Online Notarization Legal?
RON legislation is becoming increasingly common across the United States, with the Commonwealth of Virginia became the first state to issue permit online notarization in 2011, and Montana then issuing legislation on the matter in 2015. As of today, over 35 other states have passed RON legislation, while nearly all others have permitted notaries to perform RON acts.
More so, when a RON has been properly executed, the remotely notarized document typically has the same legal effect as a paper-based, physically notarized document, and therefore should be recognized anywhere in the U.S. as a valid legal document.
