Arizona Notary Acknowledgement – Individual Not Known to Notary

The Arizona notary acknowledgement for an individual not known to the notary is an instrument stating that the signature recorded on a document has been “acknowledged” by a notary public. Acknowledgement of a signature confirms that the person signing was identified by a notary, that they signed as an act of free will, and that they were indeed the person mentioned in the document. Satisfactory evidence of the individual’s identity must be provided to the notary for the acknowledgement to be valid (e.g., driver’s license, passport).
