Suppose you’re about to sign a contract when the other party mentions that they would like a notary public to witness the signature. That’s fine with you, but the contract doesn’t contain a space for notarization. The notary can’t just scrawl an acknowledgement below your signature – you need a Notarial Certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions

A certificate signed by a notary public or other legal authority that verifies the identity or veracity of a subscribing individual of a document.

The two situations the certificate is tailored for are:

  • No Space on a Document that must be Notarized – Certain documents require notarization to be legally effective. If a space for notarization was omitted from the original document, you may create and attach this certificate. 
  • Additional Proof of a Document’s Validity – Using a notary prevents a party from challenging the validity of signatures on a document.

When you create the notarial certificate, you will need to provide the following bits of information:

  • The date of the certificate’s execution;
  • The county and state where the certificate will be executed;
  • The type of notarial certificate;
  • The name of the original document; and
  • The name and residence of the signer.

 

Although there are several notarial certificates tailored to specific occasions, 360 Legal Forms offers the two most common forms of the notarial certificate: the acknowledgement and the jurat.

  • Acknowledgement – An acknowledgement simply verifies the identity of the signer of the original document.
  • Jurat – Through a jurat, the signer represents that all the facts contained in the original document are true to the best of their knowledge. If it turns out the signer knowingly falsified information in the original document, they make be subject to perjury charges.
