Rhode Island Notary Acknowledgement – Partnership

The Rhode Island notary acknowledgement for a partnership is a certificate that a notary public must fill out in order to notarize the signature of an individual who has executed a legal instrument on behalf of a partnership. The signer must be a partner for the partnership that they are representing. Furthermore, the notary public must be able to identify the individual and verify their signature. If the notary is not familiar with the signer, they must examine at least one (1) piece of photo ID that displays the signer’s likeness and signature. Once the notary has confirmed that everything is in order, they may notarize the representative’s signature by completing the acknowledgement form.
