Please confirm with the entity you are submitting your documents to and confirm they will accept electronically signed and notarized documents before you schedule your notarization.  This is legal, but not everyone is up to date with the laws.  There is no way the notary will be able to tell you who will accept an electronically signed and notarized document.

REQUIREMENTS TO COMPLETE AN ONLINE NOTARIAL TRANSACTION

  2. Smartphone (required for ID verification)
  3. Computer, tablet, or smartphone

Is it Legal?

February 1, 2022 Louisiana Remote Online Notarization Laws became effective.  Here are some if the statutes f you would like to review them.

  • 623. Legal recognition of remote online notarial acts
  1. Except as otherwise provided in Subsections B and C of this Section, a remote online notarial act that meets the requirements of R.S. 35:625 through 627 satisfies any requirement that a party appear before a notary public at the time of the execution of the instrument. In all other respects, a remote online notarial act shall comply with other applicable laws governing the manner of the execution of that act.
  2. The following instruments shall not be executed by remote online notarization:

            (1) Testaments or codicils thereto.

  1. Remote online notarization may not be used to execute an authentic act as defined in Civil Code Article 1833.
