Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (a) For purposes of this Act, a person may appear before the person taking the acknowledgment by:
        (1) being in the same physical location as the other
person and close enough to see, hear, communicate with, and exchange tangible identification credentials with that person; or
        (2) being outside the physical presence of the other
person, but interacting with the other person by means of communication technology.
    (b) If the acknowledging person is outside the physical presence of the person taking the acknowledgment, the certification of acknowledgment must indicate that the notarial act was performed by means of communication technology. A form of certificate of acknowledgment as provided by the Secretary of State, which may include the use of a remote online notarial certificate, is sufficient for purposes of this subsection (b) if it substantially reads as follows: "The foregoing instrument was acknowledged before me by means of communication technology this (date) by (each form continued as sufficient for its respective purposes.)".
