Florida Notary Acknowledgement – Individual With Disability

The Florida notary acknowledgement for an individual with a disability is used to verify the signature provided by a person who is physically unable to sign. It proves that the individual willfully executed a document with a complete understanding of the consequences of signing. Due to the limitations of the disabled individual, a notary public will act as the designated signer and give their signature on the individual’s behalf. The notary must sign in the presence of both the disabled individual and two (2) disinterested witnesses. Once signed, the notary will complete the acknowledgement certificate to confirm the signature.

Note: If the notary does not know of the individual’s identity from personal knowledge, a satisfactory form of identification must be produced.
