Notarization Definition and Examples

Understanding Notarization for e-Signing

Notarization is the process of certifying documents to ensure their authenticity. A notary public, an appointed official, verifies the identity of signers, ensures they are signing willingly, and keeps a record of the transaction. In the context of e-signing, notarization ensures electronic documents hold the same legal standing as their physical counterparts.

Why is Notarization Important?

Notarization helps prevent fraud by:

  1. Verifying Identity: A notary checks photo identification to confirm the signer's identity.
  2. Ensuring Willingness: The notary ensures that the signer is not under duress.
  3. Documenting the Event: The notary keeps records of the act to provide a trail if needed in the future.

e-Notarization: The Modern Approach

e-Notarization involves electronic documents and digital signatures, making the process faster and more efficient.

  1. Remote Online Notarization (RON): Allows individuals to get documents notarized via a secure video call.
  2. Integrated in e-Signing Platforms: Services like GoodSign have features supporting e-notarization, simplifying the workflow without added costs or complex setups.
