Due to the enactment of the Remote Online Notarization Act (R.S. 35:621 et. seq.), Louisiana now allows RON. Louisiana law requires the RON-approved Louisiana State commissioned notary to be physically in Louisiana, but the signer can be anywhere.
What cannot be notarized in Louisiana using RON:
La. Rev. Stat. Ann. §§ 35:621 et seq.
§623. Legal recognition of remote online notarial acts
A. Except as otherwise provided in Subsections B and C of this Section, a remote online notarial act that meets the requirements of R.S. 35:625 through 627 satisfies any requirement that a party appears before a notary public at the time of the execution of the instrument. In all other respects, a remote online notarial act shall comply with other applicable laws governing the manner of the execution of that Act.
B. The following instruments shall not be executed by remote online notarization:
(1) Testaments or codicils thereto.
(2) Trust instruments or acknowledgments thereof.
(3) Donations inter vivos.
(4) Matrimonial agreements or acknowledgments thereof.
(5) Acts modifying, waiving, or extinguishing an obligation of final spousal support or acknowledgments thereof.
C. Remote online notarization may not be used to execute an authentic act as defined in Civil Code Article 1833. Except as otherwise provided in Subsection B of this Section, an act that fails to be accurate as a result of being executed by remote online notarization may still be valid as an act under private signature or an acknowledged act.
D. This Chapter supplements and does not repeal, supersede, or limit the provisions of the Louisiana Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, R.S. 9:2601 et seq.
