Health Care Directives


An Advance [Healthcare] Directive allows you to select someone you can trust to make decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. It also allows you to document and communicate your decisions to those who need to know.

Remote Online Notarization

Situations exist that may not make it possible or convenient for a signer to physically appear before a notary public. For example, the current challenges being encountered when in person contact should be avoided. Nevertheless, business and commerce must continue to function when a need exists for a notarial certificate.

To address these situations, North Dakota law allows notaries public commissioned in this state to perform Remote Online Notarization (RON). To learn more about RON, visit the North Dakota Secretary of State's website.
