North Carolina Notary Acknowledgement – Attorney in Fact

The North Carolina notary acknowledgement for an attorney in fact is used when a document that has been signed by the principal’s attorney in fact requires notarial certification. For the representative to have their signature notarized, they must bring the signed document and notary acknowledgement form to a notary public. Furthermore, the attorney in fact will need to declare their authority to sign on the principal’s behalf and provide the date and location of the document’s signing (or sign it in the notary’s presence). To notarize the document, the notary will have to identify the representative, review the signature on the instrument, fill out and sign the acknowledgement form, and affix their official seal to it.
