|Taking acknowledgments||All parties acknowledge that they have signed the document willingly. When it comes to the acknowledgment, the document can be signed either in advance or in front of the notary|
|Notarizing copies of documents||Notaries can make and notarize copies of certain documents. By law, publicly recorded documents—such as marriage, death, and birth certificates—can’t be notarized|

Why Should You Choose Remote Notarization?
Since the traditional procedure is tedious, many people rely on online notary services. These platforms allow you to handle notarization from the comfort of your home, which is always convenient, not only during the pandemic.
Most online notary platforms work like this:
- You register and follow the required steps
- The platform connects you with a remote notary via a video call
- The notary witnesses your signature and provides a notarial certificate with his or her electronic signature and stamp
- You download the notarized document
Remote notarization is time-efficient, and it can be done 24 hours a day from any device.
The only downside of most online notary platforms is the price. The fee for these apps usually starts at $25 per document. If you need to get your contracts notarized frequently, you should find a more affordable solution.
