Notary Update

MI SOS Approved Electronic & Remote Notarization Vendors

Michigan amended its notary law in 2018 to be in line with other states that have authorized electronic and remote notarizations.

Their use is optional and no action is needed on your part to continue performing traditional pen and paper notarizations.
E-Mortgage Law – Offers electronic notarizations services
Nexsys – Offers both electronic and remote notarization services
Pavaso – Offers both electronic and remote notarization services
NotaryCam - Offers both electronic and remote notarization services
Notarize - Offers electronic and remote notarization services
Only approved vendor systems can be used in the state of Michigan. A Notary wishing to provide these services must use the vendors above. Use this Guide to help to understand the new options, how to update commission information and how the work of Notaries is affected.
