Electronic notarization allows you to get your documents notarized without the use of paper. There are a number of states now where e-notarized documents have the same protections as paper based notarizations.
E-notarizations does not mean remote notarizations, as you MUST still be physically present at the time the notarial act takes place as this is the law of most states. As of this post, currently the only state that allows remote notarizations is Virginia.
If you need a document notarized, you can easily use DocVerify to locate a notary, and then you can personally contact that notary to have them take care of your e-notary needs.
After you have located a notary, and that notary is a current active DocVerify e-notary, you can either send them the document directly OR use the e-notary request system in DocVerify to have your documents sent directly to the notary. Please note that the e-notary laws still apply. Each notary also has their own set of fees, and payments must be negotiated with them directly.
To locate a notary near you, please do the following:
1. If you don't have a DocVerify account, please create a free account. http://www.docverify.com/register
2. Sign in to your DocVerify account.
3. Place your mouse over the "Notary Portal" button on the top row, and click on "Notary Locator". If you're on a mobile device, click on "Notary Portal" to expand the menu.
4. Enter your search criteria, and contact the notary.
NOTE: DocVerify does not contract or hire notaries as the notaries have no affiliation to DocVerify. DocVerify provides the notary locator tool as a courtesy to the notaries using the platform to e-notarize documents for their clients.
