Notarization Made Simple

We offer Philippine Notarial Services done legitimately, affordably, and conveniently.

What we do

PhilNotary offers legitimate and convenient online notarization services in the Philippines.

With our Online Notarial Services, you can have your documents notarized by simply attending a web meeting and sending your original documents via courier.

Notarial Services are offered almost everywhere

Why choose us?

Legitimate

By law, legal assistants, secretaries, or representatives are NOT allowed to do Notarial Services. Unlike with many other providers, our Notarial Services are done only by duly licensed lawyers specifically commissioned as Notary Public and authorized by the Philippine Government

Safe and Convenient

With Online Notarization, we can process the notarization via web-meetings using Google Meet, Zoom, Viber, or Skype. No need to risk your health with exposure from face-to-face meetings in the lawyer’s office. Original notarized documents are delivered to your home.

Cost Effective

Our rates are very affordable and some are even the lowest in the industry. For example, notarization of Real Estate Deed of Sale can normally cost 1.5% to 2% of the property value from many other providers; but with PhilNotary, you save up to 50% of what others normally charge.
