The Texas Secretary of State will now accept documents that have been notarized online by a Texas Online Notary on any type of non-recordable document. The Texas SOS will only accept an online notarization that has been completed by a commissioned Texas online notary (no other states or country notaries). This went into effect on October 1, 2023.
Now you can get documents apostilled that have been notarized online by a Texas online notary.
What does this mean for you? You can be traveling or in another state or country and get your non-recordable documents notarized online and then we can get them apostilled for you. You no longer have to be physically in front of a Texas notary to sign and get a document notarized if you want a non-recordable document apostilled or authenticated in the State of Texas.
