    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August 15, 2023 -

    Chancellor Kathaleen St. J. McCormick’s Temporary Absence

    Chancellor Kathaleen St. J. McCormick has taken time off for surgery on her spine. The Court of Chancery anticipates the Chancellor returning to her duties by the end of September 2023. Court operations are not expected to be unduly affected by the Chancellor’s absence. “I want to thank all my judicial colleagues and the court staff while I take time to address medical issues and I know the court will be in good hands until my return,” she said. In general, all matters that the Chancellor took under advisement prior to her leave will be resolved on a slightly extended timeline. Cases that are lacking urgency will remain on the Chancellor’s docket and will be monitored by the Chancellor’s colleagues. Pressing matters will be reassigned to other judicial officers as the need arises. All parties involved in cases that are reassigned will be notified by the court. Chancellor McCormick was first appointed to the Court of Chancery as a Vice Chancellor in November 2018 and was elevated to the position of Chancellor in May 2021, becoming the first woman to lead the Court in its 231-year history. The Delaware Court of Chancery is widely recognized for its expertise in matters of business law and is regarded as the nation’s preeminent forum for the resolution of disputes involving the internal affairs of the hundreds of thousands of corporations and other business entities that are incorporated in this state.

    Changes to the Delaware Notary Statute go into effect tomorrow, August 1, 2023. 

    Effective August 1, 2023, A Notary Public commissioned in the State of Delaware will be able to request the ability to perform notarial acts via remote or electronic means.  Acts will need to be performed using technologies approved by the State of Delaware Notary Department and will be listed on the website notary.delaware.gov once technology providers have been approved.

    Journal Requirements: Your notary journal is the official record of the notarial transaction. The information required to be entered into the journal is the same for both paper and electronic journals – only the method of recording is different.  Journal Requirements can be found here.

    Additional information can be found on the Delaware Notary Website:  Frequently Asked Questions page.
