About the Program

Remote signings and notarizations are growing in popularity, especially as a result of COVID-19, but confusion still exists amongst estate/probate practitioners. What is an online/remote notarization and witnessing? How is it performed? Is it legally authorized in my state for use with estate planning documents? Tim Reiniger, Esq, Director of Reiniger LLC, the principal author of the Virginia online notarization law as well as the Virginia Digital Identity Law, will answer these questions and more during this all-level webinar created just for NAEPC councils and members in light of the current crisis in the country. In addition to learning answers to the most popular questions surrounding remote signing and notarizations, attendees will gain a better understanding of how to prepare an office for performing eNotarizations and online/remote notarization compliantly.
