Missouri Notary Acknowledgement Forms
Missouri notary acknowledgement forms are notarial certificates that state the act of acknowledgement, meaning a statement made to a notarial officer by a person whose name is subscribed to a particular legal instrument. In practice, a notary acknowledgement form is attached to (or included in) a document such as a power of attorney, affidavit, deed of trust, sworn statement, or similar legal document. Different types of notary forms exist due to the fact that there are a number of different situations/capacities in which a person might sign a document; as an individual, as a partner, as a representative of a corporation, or as an individual swearing an oath/affirmation (jurat). Documents which require one of the first three (3) types mentioned can be signed before presenting said document to a notary public. Documents with jurats attached thereto, on the other hand, must be signed in the notary’s presence to be valid.
