What can an eNotary Public do for you?
eNotaries Public can provide you a notarized, digital document. You can send it as an original by e-mail or various digital means. You can also simply print one off and hand it over like a traditional notarization. Remote/IPEN notarizations have the same legal standing as a traditional one. Remember that you will need to provide your document digitally first.
Remote Online Notarization (RON)
If directions to you from this Google Maps pin exceed 20 miles, you should choose this option to save money.
A principal's identity is verified through several digital means. Then, through recorded audio/visual communication:
the principal declares they have willingly signed a document
the principal swears to, or affirms the truthfulness of, the contents of a document while signing in the virtual presence of the eNotary.
In-Person Electronic Notarization (IPEN)
The mobile eNotary arrives in person. After you have digitally signed your document, it will be sealed and e-mailed to you.

Things a Notary Public CANNOT do for you:
Choose the type of notarization a signer needs.
This is something you have to decide for yourself. If you don't feel qualified to make a decision, and you weren't told what kind of notarization you need, you should consult an attorney.
Conduct notarizations through an interpreter.
Missouri law states that the person singing must be able to communicate directly with the notary in a language both understand.
Give advice or opinions that should be given by an attorney.
informing you of the legal effect of your documents
explaining how to complete a document
interpreting what a law means
choosing the type of notarization a signer needs
Certify vital records, public records, or recorded documents.
Such records and documents are often government issued, containing information about a person’s important life events. This includes birth or death certificates, divorce decrees and marriage licenses. Such documents must be obtained from, and certified by, the issuing agencies or recorder of deeds.
Draft, or assist with creating, documents for signers.
This should be done by someone with legal qualifications. Most notably an attorney.
Do anything that shows partiality.
Notaries Public cannot take sides, and must follow all rules, therefore not discriminating on any basis. They may not proceed with notarization in situations which compromise that impartiality.
