The New Jersey notary acknowledgement for proof of execution is a notarial certificate that confirms the identity of the “subscribing witness” for a legal document. A subscribing witness can either be an individual who acts as a witness to the signing of a document or it can be the person who assists a person who is physically incapable of signing to sign (or mark with an “X”) a legal instrument that is in their (the disabled person’s) name. A second witness (credible witness) may also be required to confirm the identity of the subscribing witness. This form must be signed by a notary public in order to be valid. Once the subscribing witness has proven their identity to the notary public and sworn that they witnessed the signing of the legal instrument, the notary will complete and sign the “proof of execution” form.
