Online Notarization

Thursday, April 16, 2020

Court users who need to have signatures witnessed on legal documents can now do so by an online notary public. In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, Governor Ricketts has signed an executive order allowing for early implementation of the Online Notary Public Act, which was to go into effect on July 1, 2020. 

The Nebraska Secretary of State’s Office has implemented an expedited process for Nebraska notaries to become authorized to provide online notary services.  Individuals within courthouses who would like to become an online notary public are encouraged to apply through the Secretary of State’s website: https://sos.nebraska.gov/business-services/notary-public.
