Published on 10/05/2021
New Hampshire residents will now be able to notarize documents online via remote online notarization (RON) permanently, thanks to Senate Bill 134. If you’re a New Hampshire resident looking to take advantage of the convenience and security of online notarization, read on to find out how you can do just that with NotaryLive!
Getting Documents Notarized with RON in New Hampshire
If you’re a New Hampshire resident looking to notarize a document, you would have been able to do so with or without this bill as online notarization laws apply to the notaries themselves rather than the person who is looking to have a document notarized.
To get started notarizing a document through NotaryLive, all you need is the document you are looking to get notarized, a device with camera/microphone capabilities that is connected to the internet, and either a valid driver's license or passport. Once your identity is confirmed using state-of-the-art ID verification technology, you will be connected with one of our live notaries via webcam.

What this Means for 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 notarization states that have not adopted RON at a disadvantage - especially in the business world.
