How can a notary using a webcam to perform a notarial act for an elderly person (for instance) ensure that the signer has not been coerced into signing a will or power of attorney by a criminally-minded family member or health care provider?
The source of coercion may be present in the same room but not visible to the webcam notary.
The use of webcam notarization will compromise notarial acts.
The requirement that the signer be physically present is the basis of every notarial act and is necessary to ensure a valid notarization.
Webcam notarizations bound by the technology required in this bill will eliminate the need for thousands of notaries in the State of Texas, notaries who are your constituents.
