Legality & Security

The legal
precedent
is established

On July 1, 2012, the Commonwealth of Virginia signed into effect bills SB 827 and HB 2318. This groundbreaking legislation authorizes Virginia Notaries to legally notarize any signature, regardless of location, using Video-Audio technology.

All our notaries are licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, and are official representatives of the state.

Although only notaries licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia are allowed to notarize documents online, Virginia explicitly gives its notaries the ability to notarize documents from people outside of Virginia.

In addition, the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the US Constitution requires each state respect the “public acts, records, and judicial proceedings of every other state.” Every state has also passed laws that recognize notarial acts taken in other states.

In California, for example, it is found in CA Civil Code 1189 2(b) : “Any certificate of acknowledgment taken in another place shall be sufficient in this state if it is taken in accordance with the laws of the place where the acknowledgment is made.”

In summary, interstate recognition of notarial acts is well established. Here’s a link to the National Notary Association’s white paper on the topic.
