Frequently Asked Questions
Remote Online Notarization is an online video system that allows documents to be signed and notarized over the internet using your webcam and microphone. Only a licensed remote notary can do remote online notarizations.
No, the laws of the State of Nevada permit a licensed Nevada Remote Online Notary to notarize the signatures of any United States citizen located anywhere in the United States. This eliminates the need to travel to a Notary Public’s office or pay for a Notary Public to travel to your home or office. Using us for the remote online notarization allows you to have your documents remotely notarized in the privacy and comfort of your home or office.
The law allows a licensed remote online notary to charge $25.00 for each signature. However, we feel that this charge is not warranted for each signature if a signer is signing more than one document during the same online session, such as when a signer is creating an estate plan that consists of multiple documents. Therefore, we charge a $20.00 setup fee plus $5.00 for the first signature for each signer, and $2.50 for each additional signature by the same signer during the same online session. Each session is limited to 8 documents. With the above pricing structure, the cost is the same for Remote Online Notarize as the cost for a Notary Public to travel to your home or office and notarize you documents in person.
Yes, it’s more secure than traditional paper notarizations and is designed to detect identity fraud. We use DocVerify as our technology provider. DocVerify satisfies Nevada’s strict remote online notary law. Each remote online notarization session is recorded and retained by DocVerify for ten years. Every signer’s drivers license or state issued photo ID is analyzed for authenticity. Also, the signer’s identity is authenticated using Knowledge Based Authentication.
DocVerify features one of the strongest 256-bit advanced encryption standards (AES) providing powerful document and file encryption. This prevents unauthorized access or views, including access by our own IT personnel. Encrypted documents can only be opened or viewed by the document owner or users the document owner has authorized. Nobody else. No way.
To begin the Remote Online Notarization process, each signer must meet the minimum requirements listed below. If the minimum requirements cannot be met by all signers, then the Remote Online Notarization process cannot be started.
- A Windows PC with Chrome or Firefox, or a Mac using Safari or Chrome, or an IPad or IPhone using IOS 11 or higher with Safari 11 or higher
- A camera and microphone on the device that is accessible by the browser.
- Each signer MUST have their own device. Each signer, including witnesses, must come online at the same time using a separate device (no sharing). An email is sent to each signer’s unique email address, and these emails contain the links for the signers to go online.
- A consistent high speed internet connection.
- Be a United States citizen
- Have a state issued drivers license or photo ID card (Passports or military identification is not sufficient)
- Have a Social Security Number (you will only be asked for the last 4-digits during the ID Verification)
- Have at least 5 years of credit history in the United States (your credit will not be “pulled”, but you history is used to generate a 5-questions during the ID Verification)
- Have credit reports unlocked (if your credit reports are locked contact the credit bureaus to unlock your credit reports)
- Have a United States based mobile telephone number
Once you certify that all signers meet the technology and personal requirements listed above and have uploaded your documents, each signer will receive an email from DocVerify.
To begin the Identity Verification process click on the Get Started button in the email. There are three steps in the Identify Verification process.
First, upload the front and back of your state issued drivers license or photo ID card, and a picture of your face. The system will verify that that your drivers license or photo ID card is valid and that the picture of your face matches the photo on the drivers license or photo ID card.
Second, enter the requested information. The requested information is your full legal name, the last four digits of your social security number, your date of birth, your legal address, and your mobile phone number.
Third, you will be asked five multiple choice questions based on information pulled from your credit files. You will have two minutes to answer those five questions. You must answer at least four of them correctly to pass the Identity Verification. If you do not pass the Identity Verification you may take try one more time. If you do not pass on the second attempt, you must wait 24 hours to try again.
Not everyone can pass the Identity Verification. In that case, the Remote Online Notarization cannot be done.
