Ohio Remote Online Notary Public

Ohio Remote Online Notary Public

Sign important legal or estate planning documents from the comfort of your home using an Ohio remote online notary public!

Golowin Legal, LLC can now provide online notary public services to those that want to sign important legal or estate planning documents such as durable financial powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, living wills, deeds, and contracts without the inconvenience of going to a bank or finding a notary public.

This is especially helpful at the moment due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and current state of quarantine in Ohio.

To have your documents notarized by a remote online notary public, you must:

  • Provide the final document to be signed to the notary public in Word or PDF format.

  • Have a computer with a web camera and internet connection. This is because the notary public must be able to see and hear you during the meeting, and you must be able to see and hear the notary.

  • Answer randomly generated security questions when logging in to the online notary public website. These are to prevent imposters from being able to sign documents as though they were you.

  • Present your identification (such as a driver's license) during the web meeting to verify your identity to the notary public.

  • Pay the remote online notary fee of $25 per document plus DocVerify costs of $14 per document or $23 per packet of documents via credit card.

Once the documents are signed online, the remote online notary public can affix the notarial certificate, signature, and seal.

A digital version (PDF) of the signed and notarized document will be provided to you, and any copy that you print will be considered an original document.

Ohio county auditors, engineers and recorders are required to accept a printed document that was notarized electronically for purposes of approval, transfer and recording if the document contains the required notarial certificate.

If you need to have a document notarized and would like to do so from your home, book a time now.

You will immediately receive an email from Calendly that confirms the time of the online notary public session and provides further instructions.
