Illinois Notary Acknowledgement Form

The Illinois notary acknowledgement forms are legal tools completed by a notary public for the purpose of signature authentication. An individual may seek to authenticate their signature while acting in their own capacity, or while acting on the behalf of an entity or individual they represent. In either case, the signer must personally appear before the notary public and present the instrument being notarized, the appropriate notarial certificate (e.g., individual acknowledgement, corporate acknowledgement), and, if the notary does not have personal knowledge of their identity, a sufficient form of identification. Once all notarial duties are satisfied, the notary may execute the acknowledgement certificate to authenticate the signature.
