South Carolina Notary Acknowledgement Forms

The South Carolina Notary Acknowledgment forms along with the various other notarial certificates located on this page are documents used to authenticate the signature on a legal instrument. These forms enable a notary public to administer oaths and affirmations, record the execution of a signature, recognize the acknowledgement of the principal instruments and otherwise carry out all necessary notarial duties. In each case, the principal, or representative thereof, will be required to present themselves before the notary public with the legal instrument and notarial certificate in hand. Depending on the type of certification required, they may need to sign the instrument before the officer.
