North Carolina Individual Notary Acknowledgement

The North Carolina individual notary acknowledgement is a form that a notary uses to provide notarization for an individual who has signed a legal document in their own name. This type of notarial certificate is most often used to verify the signatory’s identity and intention to sign the instrument. The individual must show the signed papers to a notary public and identify themselves with a piece of photo ID that shows their likeness and signature. Once the notary has positively identified the signatory, they may proceed to affix their signature and official seal.
