Online Notary Services
Approved by the State of Florida
Notarization is a process meant to deter fraud. A Notary Public is a person who authenticates a document, ensures the signatures are genuine, and verifies that no party signed the document under duress or intimidation.
To perform this authentication, the notary screens the signer for:
While notarization protects individuals and businesses from fraud and theft, fulfilling notarization requirements can be burdensome and costly—particularly when you are already hiring multiple professionals for a legal process. At KEW Legal®, we became Florida-approved online notaries because we aim to make your legal process as convenient as possible.

What Is Online Notarization?
On June 7, 2019, Florida legislators signed HB 409: Electronic Legal Documents into law. As of January 1, 2020, this law allows qualified notaries to perform online remote notarizations. This process eliminates the burden of meeting with a notary in person. To become online notaries, we:
- Demonstrated our status as Notary Publics
- Contracted with third-party vendors to install the technology needed to complete the online notarization sessions
- Became certified through the accredited training course
In addition to our comprehensive legal services, we can now complete a wide variety of procedures without bringing in a third-party notary or even meeting you in person.
What Documents Require Notarizations?
From real estate to civil court proceedings, a wide variety of processes involve documents that are not valid unless notarized. Here are just a few of the documents KEW Legal® can notarize for clients:
- Real property deeds
- Powers of attorney
- Certified copies of college degrees, passports, etc.
Notarization is a critical legal protection that our team at KEW Legal® is honored to perform. Our goal is to make all financial and legal processes as smooth as possible for our clients, and becoming online notaries authorized by the State of Florida was one small way to accomplish that goal.
