How Remote Notary Works

How Remote Notary Works

Here at GALS Nashville, I had my very first online remote notary signing for a client. It was really easy to immediately get their documents notarized and filed with the clerk’s office. So basically, one smooth action that didn’t take very much time, and I didn’t need to print anything.

I prepared the documents, we signed them electronically, I notarized them electronically, and then I uploaded them to the clerk’s website. It is a pretty seamless process, and I am hoping more clients choose to go this way in the future. This new process will save you so much time since there’s no coming to the office or finding a bank or UPS store to get your documents notarized. 

All of the security protocols are within the software. I use a software called SIGNiX that’s based out of Chattanooga. They use knowledge-based authentication (KBA), which is required under regulations controlling remote notaries under the state of Tennessee.

How it works:

  1. We prepare all the required documents
  2. Sign electronically on Zoom with me
  3. I notarize electronically
  4. I file the document with the clerk’s office
  5. Done!
