There are a few options for notarizing a document that requires two or more signers:
- Co-located: Signers are in the same room and join the same notary meeting together on one device (computer or mobile). A maximum of two signers can participate in a co-located meeting for a retail transaction.
- Split Signing: Signers are in different locations and are either unable or unwilling to join the same online notary meeting. Separate notary meetings take place, and fees are paid for each meeting. (Also known as Sequential Signing.)
Concurrent Signing: Signers are in different locations and join the same notary meeting from separate devices simultaneously. If a signer starts a Concurrent Signing and they choose to move forward instead of waiting in the Waiting Room, it becomes a Split Signing:
- All annotations must be made during the meeting. Sign Ahead cannot be used with Concurrent Signing.
- If co-signers are not available simultaneously, or you want to use the Sign Ahead feature, opt for Split Signing.
