Virtual Notarization or Remote Online Notarization (RON) is a new form of notarization permitted in Florida as of January 1, 2020.
Florida’s previous notary laws required that the person signing certain legal documents and persons signing as witnesses to be in the same room, that is, be physically present at the time the notarization took place.
Florida’s new RON law allows persons to be physically outside the presence of the Notary. A Certified Florida Notary may notarize a document completely online as long as the notary is located in Florida and all parties can see, hear and communicate with each other via acceptable audio-video technology.
Moreover, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, RON has increasingly become a logical alternative and preference as parties to a transaction do not have to be in others’ physical presence.
Legally Notarize Your Documents Remotely
Mobile Notary Service of South Florida provides a remote notary public 24×7 so you can sign and notarize documents from the convenience of your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Upload your documents
Your document should be in high-quality PDF format. If your document isn’t a PDF, you’ll have to convert the file before you can upload it.
Please remember that you won’t be able to add anything to the document after electronic notarization – the document needs to be filled out completely – except the signature.
Confirm your ID
Before you meet with our notaries, we’ll ask you a few questions about yourself to confirm your identity. You can be asked to upload your ID or/and answer a few questions.
During your scheduled meeting, you’ll be connected with a notary through a two-way video call where you’ll sign and the notary will notarize the document electronically.
After notarization, you will be able to access and download your document.
