How To Become A Remote Online Notary or Notarize Your Documents Online in The Prairie State

Remote Online Notarization is now permanently legal in Illinois following the signing of IL Senate Bill 2664. Not only does the signing of this bill make notarization much more convenient for Illinois residents, but it also allows notaries public within the Prairie State better opportunities to grow and work under flexible schedules thanks to their ability to notarize remotely.

This change also allows for faster growth within key business sectors as well, improving the way everyone in IL can conduct business from law firms to medical businesses, real estate agencies, small businesses, and more!

As the signer, you can get your documents notarized from anywhere: it is the notary that needs to learn the laws of each state and if they can become an online notary legally.

What This Law Means for the Other States

While RON allows for an incredibly fast, convenient, and secure notarization experience, some states have been slow to adopt it permanently. Because most notarization laws apply to the notary and not the person in need of notarization, notaries in those states are missing out on potential income as people can use RONs acting in other states to notarize their documents much more quickly than through an in-person notarization. This puts states that have not yet adopted RON at a disadvantage.
