The certificate of acknowledgment is the form most frequently completed
by a notary public. Basically, a certificate of acknowledgment certifies
that the signer personally appeared before the notary on the date and
in the county indicated, that the signer provided valid identification,
and that the signer acknowledged executing the document.
The second most common form to be completed by a notary is the jurat,
which is identified by the wording "subscribed and sworn to (or
affirmed) before me." A jurat certifies that the signer personally
appeared before the notary on the date and in the county indicated, that
the signer signed the document in the presence of the notary public,
and that the notary public administered the oath or affirmation.
Additionally, the notary public must certify the identity of the signer.
The oath wording is typically: Do you swear or affirm that the statements on this document are true?
When administering the oath, the signer and notary public usually raise
their right hands, but there is no legal requirement to do so.
