Governor Extends Remote Online Notarization and Witnessing

Posted on: October 5, 2020

If you need important legal documents executed including wills, contracts, and any court pleadings, Gov. Bill Lee just announced he is extending Tennessee’s state of emergency through October, the Tennessean reports. Executive Order 63 also extends certain targeted provisions of previous orders, including remote online notarization and witnessing, which the order now extends through Oct. 30.

Lee’s order also repeals all COVID-19-related restrictions on businesses and gathering in the state, but county health departments in Tennessee’s six largest cities will continue to be able to set their own regulations. The order will allow county mayors to choose whether to impose mask mandates, though some counties in recent weeks had chosen to end their mandates ahead of the governor’s decision.

There are important requirements that remain in effect in order for notarization to be effective and we are able to meet with you in person or remotely to discuss any of your legal needs. For the complete article, read here:
