How To Become A Notary or Notarize Your Documents in The Tar Heel State

Remote Online Notarization is now permanently legal in North Carolina after Governor Roy Cooper signed House Bill 776 into law on Friday, July 8, 2022. This decision permanently authorizes North Carolina public notaries to conduct identity verification and Remote Online Notarization (RON) with the use of “audio and visual technology.”

This new law replaces the temporary law which authorized remote online notarization to help prevent in-person contact in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. While notaries in North Carolina were able to enjoy the benefits of online notarization on a short-term basis, they are now able to continue the convenient and secure practice of online notarization.

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. 

Check out our blog for more information on which states notaries can become an online notary.
