Notary Forms

Information found on this page and any other pages are NOT a substitute for legal advice from an attorney. The forms listed below are provided as a public service. I accept no liability.

If there is no notarial wording on your document, you must choose which form to use. Notaries cannot advise you on your choice of form. If you do not know what type of notarial certificate your document requires, please contact the author of the document, or the document recipient, and have them advise you regarding what type of form you should use.

§ 10B 41. Notarial Certificate of Acknowledgement:
This is the most frequent type of notarization. Acknowledging a document means that the properly identified signer personally appeared before the notary, on the date & in the county indicated, that the signer either signs in front of the notary or acknowledges that s/he did indeed sign the document as well as acknowledging that the document was signed without coercion & that the signer is aware of the documents contents.

Affidavits: An affidavit is the second most frequent type of notarization. An affidavit is a voluntary, sworn written statement and often contains a jurat. For an affidavit, the name of the affiant, the person giving the statement, must be mentioned in the document. The signer must personally appear before the notary and either swears or affirms to the truthfulness of the documents and its contents and signs the document in the presence of the notary.

§ 10B-42. Notarial Certificate for a Verification of a Subscribing Witness: When properly completed by a notary, a notarial certificate in substantially the following form may be used and shall be sufficient under the law of this State to satisfy the requirements for a notarial certificate for the verification or proof of the signature of a principal by a subscribing witness. The authorization of the form in this section does not preclude the use of other forms.

§ 10B-42. Notarial Certificate for a Verification of a Non-Subscribing Witness: When properly completed by a notary, a notarial certificate in substantially the following form may be used and shall be sufficient under the law of this State to satisfy the requirements for a notarial certificate for the verification or proof of the signature of a Revised 9/18/2014 -19- principal or subscribing witness by a non-subscribing witness. The authorization of the form in this section does not preclude the use of other forms.

§ 10B-43. Notarial Certificate for an Oath or Affirmation (Jurat): does not satisfy the requirements for acknowledgment of the execution of a document for recording. A certificate containing an oath or affirmation is a jurat and does not contain the elements of an acknowledgment and is insufficient for recording. When properly completed by a notary, a notarial certificate that substantially complies with either of the following forms may be used and shall be sufficient under the law of this State to satisfy the requirements for a notarial certificate for an oath or affirmation. The authorization of the forms in this section does not preclude the use of other forms.
