New Hampshire Notary Acknowledgement – Representative Capacity

The New Hampshire notary acknowledgement for a person acting in a representative capacity is used to obtain the required notarization when an authorized representative is signing a legal instrument on the behalf of another party. For a notary acknowledgement, the document’s signer does not need to sign in front of the notary. The individual must present themselves to a notary with the signed document and the notary must confirm the person’s identity before they provide their notarization.
