View the Proclamation…
This Proclamation gives all commissioned Alabama Notaries the ability to officiate for notarization of wet-signed paper documents, using videoconference technology to enable presence before the Notary of the principal signer and any witnesses.
An earlier Proclamation limited this authority to Alabama Attorney-Notaries and Notaries being supervised by an Alabama Attorney, but those limitations are now lifted. The April 2, 2020 Proclamation granting these powers expires at the end of Alabama's declared public health emergency unless it is rescinded or extended.
American Society of Notaries offers the following procedural steps for consideration.
