If you have ever thought about securing mobile notary or remote online notary services for yourself or your organization, First Class Signing Service (FCSS) can walk you through every step in the process and explain exactly how you can benefit from both of these common notarization forms. As a leading provider of both mobile notary and remote online notary services in Georgia and throughout the United States, FCSS is well-equipped to answer any questions that you might have.

Mobile Notaries – Explained and Understood

The traditional notarization of yore typically involved traveling to the office of a local notary public each time you had a document that required legally binding verification and approval. With the exception of large organizations who kept one or more fully licensed and commissioned notary on staff, this presented major inconveniences and slowed the pace of operations considerably for any business that required the signing and filing of official documents.

After the birth of the mobile notary several decades ago, organizations and individuals alike can now notarize documents on site in the locations that work best for them. True to their name, mobile notaries travel wherever necessary within their states of jurisdiction to perform document notarization at the homes, workplaces, or even hospital rooms of their clients.

Remote Online Notaries – Explained and Understood

What is remote online notarization?

Remote online notarization (or “RON”) takes the ease and convenience of mobile notarization even further by harnessing the power of modern technology. By utilizing tools such as video conferencing and digital signatures, remote online notaries can perform their services in real time among participants who might be separated by tremendous physical distances.

Although they may never meet face-to-face with the clients that they serve, remote online notaries can verify the identity and witness the signatures of all necessary parties to make legal agreements binding with an official seal.

Does Georgia allow online notarization?

Georgia currently does not support remote online notarization or e-signatures on notarized documents again. Previously, due to the State of Emergency during the pandemic, Georgia Gov. Kemp temporarily suspended the physical presence requirement for notarial acts and gave way to remote notarizations.

What Are the Advantages of Using a Mobile Notary?

Beyond the obvious convenience of ordering notarization services to come directly to you, you can benefit from using a mobile notary in a variety of ways. For example, organizations that require notary services regularly tend to find that they can save money and time by hiring mobile notaries/traveling notaries. In addition to boosting productivity through enhanced efficiency, on-site notarization eliminates the need for employee travel as well as the expenses that go along with it.

These services become all the more valuable when traveling to a necessary location becomes highly impractical or even impossible for any number of reasons, such as:

  1. Limited Mobility or Time Constraints:  If you have difficulty traveling due to illness, injury, disability or a busy schedule, a mobile notary can come to your location (home, office, hospital) to notarize your documents. It eliminates the hassle and stress of finding transportation or rearranging your day.
  2. Last-Minute Needs:  Unexpected situations may arise where you need a document notarized quickly. A mobile notary service can often accommodate urgent requests by scheduling an appointment on short notice, saving you valuable time and effort.
  3. Multiple Signers in Different Locations:  If you have multiple documents requiring notarization from parties spread out geographically, coordinating a single notary appointment can be challenging. A mobile notary can travel to each signer’s location, streamlining the process.
  4. Real Estate Transactions:  During real estate closings, timeliness is crucial. Hiring a mobile notary specifically experienced in real estate transactions can ensure a smooth and efficient signing process, minimizing delays that could impact the closing date.
