TOPIC: Use of electronic Seal to Notarize a signature...

Use of electronic Seal to Notarize a signature... 1 year 2 weeks ago #1780

Greatly confused:

On,www.sos.state.tx.us/statdoc/faqs2300.shtml#np25 it states: What are the requirements for performing an electronic notarization?

Any Texas notary may perform an electronic notarization. An electronic notarization must meet all of the requirements of any other notarization, such as the requirement that the signer personally appear before the notary to acknowledge the document. In addition, the notary’s electronic seal must reproduce the required elements of the notary seal.

In addition, the Texas Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (“TUETA”) applies to transactions that the parties agree to conduct electronically. TUETA includes a section providing for an electronic notarization:

§322.011. NOTARIZATION AND ACKNOWLEDGMENT. If a law requires a signature or record to be notarized, acknowledged, verified, or made under oath, the requirement is satisfied if the electronic signature of the person authorized to perform those acts, together with all other information required to be included by other applicable law, is attached to or logically associated with the signature or record.

BUT.... when calling the office they say no, not in Texas, not yet. It needs to be voted on here. Don't do it!

Anyone else have any idea about this? Please help!!!!

Thanks
