Arkansas Notary Acknowledgement Forms

The Arkansas notary acknowledgement forms are legal instruments which prove that a notary public has confirmed the identity of an individual, and that the individual has signed a document as an act of his or her own free will. Additionally, an acknowledgement form indicates the signer’s comprehension of the instrument they are signing. A notarial acknowledgement certificate may be needed when executing documents of significant importance such as a business contract or loan. To locate a notary, the signing party should contact their local bank or conduct a quick search of the State’s notary web portal (linked below) to find the names of all licensed notaries operating in Arkansas.
