The Tennesee General Notary Acknowledgement form is a document attached to a legal instrument which indicates that the signatories acknowledged their signatures and therefore executed the instrument for the purposes relayed therein. To complete the notarization process, the principal or an authorized agent will be required to present themselves before a notary public with the initial document signed and the acknowledgement form on hand. The notarial officer will identify the principal (or agent) by personal knowledge of their identity or through adequate identification. The officer will then ensure that the signatory completed the instrument, fill in the fields of the acknowledgement form, and furnish the form with their official seal.
