The South Dakota Attorney Notary Acknowledgement form is used to acknowledge the identity and signature of an attorney-in-fact signing in a representational capacity to the principal. The completed form indicates, once the seal has been administered, that the attorney’s signature is legally viable and that they officially represent the principal. It will be necessary for the attorney to prove to the notary public through a power of attorney document that they indeed have the authority to sign on the principal’s behalf. Furthermore, the attorney-in-fact’s identity must be confirmed upon arrival while that of the principal needn’t be proven.
