Does New Jersey allow deposition oaths or other notarial acts to be administered remotely during the COVID-19 state of emergency?
Yes. On April 14, 2020, Governor Murphy signed into law a bill allowing notary publics, or otherwise qualified persons, to administer oaths and perform other specified “notarial acts” remotely during the state of emergency declared by Executive Order 103 of 2020, provided certain requirements are met such as satisfactory evidence of the third party’s identity and utilizing communication technology which provides simultaneous audio and visual contact.
