This year has forced both individuals and businesses around the world to alter and adapt how they operate on a day-to-day basis. Working remotely, keeping 6 feet apart, wearing masks, and more have become the new normal.

Despite the restrictions, several businesses have found ways to adapt and thrive online. In this way, the online notarization industry was ahead of its time.

Life keeps moving forward even during a pandemic, and there is no shortage of documents needing to be notarized. Since a major requirement of notarization is that the customer must appear in person before the notary, this can present a problem in times where close interaction is discouraged.

Luckily, remote online notary services like NotaryLive have been offering a solution to this problem long before the pandemic struck. So while you may be unfamiliar with how it works, we've got it down to a science.

What was once a convenient service for busy individuals has now become the only socially distant way to notarize documents.

If you’ve got court papers, a POA, or any other documents that need to be notarized and have been struggling to find a way to do it during the pandemic, don’t worry! The answer is only as far away as your desktop or mobile device. Just find an online notary service, upload your document, confirm your identity, and connect to a live notary public. You’ll have a notarized doc in minutes!

Now, you may wondering "How does an online notary confirm my identity if the whole purpose of a notary is see me in person?" The truth is online notarization is actually more secure than getting a document notarized in person. There are more restrictions and guidelines in place with online notary services. So never fear, your info is safe with us!

If you’re concerned that your state doesn’t allow remote notarization, don’t worry. Several states have been fast-tracking laws to make it legal in light of recent events. Also, just because a Notary from your state can't notarize the document, doesn't mean you can't use online notary services

So, if you’ve got court papers, a POA, or any other documents that need to be notarized and have been struggling to find a way to do it during the pandemic, don’t worry! The answer is only as far away as your desktop or mobile device. Just find an online notary service, upload your document, confirm your identity, and connect to a live notary public. You’ll have a notarized doc in minutes!
