An Online Notarization, also known as a Webcam Notarization, Remote Online Notarization or RON, is an electronic notarization conducted over the Internet, where a remote signer personally appears before a specialized Texas Online Notary Public, using live audio-visual technology.
The digital document is electronically signed and notarized, meeting the standards adopted under Subchapter C. Chapter 406 of the Texas Government Code and Texas Administrative Code § 87.41.
We are commissioned by the State of Texas to complete online notarization.
How do the fees differ from Mobile Notary fees?
Online notaries are allowed to charge $25 plus the regular notary fees authorized by Texas Government Code §406.024.
- if an online notary notarizes the signature of one person, the charge will be $31, i.e. $25 + $6 = $31;
- if an online notary notarizes the signatures of two persons named in the same notarial certificate, the charge will be $32, i.e. $25 + $6 +$1 = $32;
- if an online notary notarizes the signatures of two persons, and there are separate notarial certificates for each signing party, the charge will be $62, i.e. $25 +$6 for the first notarization and $25 +$6 for the second notarization, which totals $62.
Is Your Document Suitable For RON?
Unless you need me to take care of uploading your document(s) that are to be notarzied, there is no need to email them to me ahead of time. You can upload them yourself directly to the platform.
It is important to make sure your document is in in PDF format.
If they are not already in PDF form, I can convert them to PDF for a small fee.
Please ask the person or organization requiring the notarization if an online remote notarization is acceptable.
We cannot provide legal advice as to the acceptability of a remote notarization in your individual case.
