On Thursday April 9, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued an executive order related to notaries and the signing of documents. The order temporarily suspends the in person requirement and provides for changes to how notarizations may occur. It allows notaries to conduct notarizations using two-way real-time audiovisual technology to conduct a notarization so long as certain conditions are met. Please note: As of now, this method of notarization is only allowed through August 31, 2020.
- Patrons must have access to a device with a camera and microphone and have an active Internet connection.
- Patrons must be willing to have the online interaction recorded and stored by the notary.
- Satisfactory evidence of identity must be presented during the video conference.
- Patrons must immediately transmit (fax, mail, email) a legible copy of the entire signed document on the same date that it was signed. On receipt of the document, the notary shall notarize the document and send it back to the patron. The date and time of the notarization is the date and time the notary witnessed the person sign during the video conference.
