We’re excited to announce that Holland & Muirden is now offering online notary services in Ohio!
Online notarization became legal in Ohio in September 2019 and requires the individual notary complete special training and pass an examination. Our notary public is authorized by the Secretary of State’s Office to perform these services.
An online notarization is performed by an authorized Ohio notary public when a signer personally appears before the notary using audio-visual technology instead of being physically present in the same location as the notary. An online notarization requires the use of an online notarization system to perform the act, as the signer is not located in the same location as the notary. The ability to have a document notarized online is convenient and simplifies the entire process for notaries and clients alike. It also provides additional benefits such as:
➡️Providing a service to clients who simply are not able to make it to an office.
➡️Maintaining social/physical distancing.
➡️Saving trees! In addition to eliminating travel, online notarization can be a green service with digital-only copies of the documents being notarized.
In addition, this process offers clients additional security measures and creates a video recording of the entire notarization process. There is a state maximum fee of $25.00 per notarization.
