Remote Notarization – Many states around the country already permit notarizations to be performed remotely by trained online notaries who utilize regulated remote notary technology providers.  There is currently nothing in Delaware statutes that prohibits an individual or business from using a remote notary from states who permit remote notarization.  At this time Delaware does not permit remote notarizations by Delaware notaries. 

 

The general public can use Notarize.com and NotaryCam or any other provider that they may research and choose.  There are specific charges to remotely notarize a document using notaries who are licensed and trained to perform remote online notarizations.  Please visit their websites for further instructions.

 

CAUTION:  You still need to comply with the legal requirements for the document you need to notarize. A document that needs additional witnesses or an attorney when notarized in person still needs them to be present when the document is notarized online; the only difference is they can now participate remotely via an approved provider’s online platform.
