Simple, inexpensive and safe
In welcome news from Harrisburg, Governor Wolf has signed into law Act 97 of 2020, making the emergency provisions of remote on-line notary permanent. Previously, the remote notary provisions were set to expire sixty days after the expiration of the Governor’s declared emergency regarding the Covid-19 epidemic. Now Pennsylvanians will continue to benefit from the opportunity to sign remotely-notarized documents from the safety of their own home.
Remote notary is simple, inexpensive and safe. The signer, notary, and witnesses all join an on-line meeting, and the signing of documents and notarial act are all completed electronically. The process can take as little as ten minutes, and completed documents are provided electronically to the signor within the hour. No travel or attendance is required. As long as the signer has reliable internet service and can complete a straightforward identification process, the entire signing can be completed from the safety and comfort of their own home. This service can be provided to residents outside of the Commonwealth, including those serving abroad in the armed forces, to complete estate planning documents, real estate transactions, or other legal actions.
CGA Law Firm has experienced paralegals and up-to-date technology to provide this safe, convenient and efficient notary process to you. Please consider using remote notary for your next transaction. We will be happy to assist you!
