Connecticut Notary Acknowledgement Forms

The Connecticut notary acknowledgement forms are official records indicating that the individual who executed a document signed willingly and that they were qualified to sign. Acknowledgement certificates will need to be completed by a notary public or other State official authorized to conduct notarial acts. The person seeking acknowledgement must appear before the notarial officer and provide them with satisfactory evidence of their identity; unless the individual is known to the notarial officer, they must either show two (2) or more current government-issued identification documents, or have a credible witness perform an oath (or affirmation) attesting to their identity.

Laws § 1-33 and § 1-62
