House Bill 514 provides for remote online notarization for limited situations involved affidavits and acknowledgments for private acts. Specifically excluded from remote notarization are any authentic acts, testaments, codicils, trusts or acknowledgments thereof, donations, matrimonial agreements or acknowledgments thereof, and acts modifying, waiving or extinguishing an obligation of final spousal support or acknowledgment thereof. A provision of this bill is that only notaries who have statewide jurisdiction may perform remote online notarizations.
