Connecticut Notary Acknowledgement – Credible Witness

The Connecticut notary acknowledgement for a credible witness is used when an individual wishes to notarize a document but lacks the forms of identification necessary to establish their identity. For these circumstances, a credible witness (someone well known by both the signing party and the notary public conducting the transaction) can act as a third-party to confirm the identity of the signing party. The credible witness will need to personally appear before the notary public and perform an oath or affirmation attesting to the individual’s identity.
