Certified notary publics are empowered by the state to take acknowledgements, administer oaths and affirmations, and certify copies of documents as true copies. They are not lawyers and cannot give legal advice. I am a member of the American Association of Notaries which helps me stay current on the rules and regulations in the field.
Acknowledgement – a formal declaration made by a person signing a document who states that it was his/her free act and deed. That is, the person signed it without undue influence and for the purposes detailed in it. A certificate of acknowledgment is a written statement signed and sealed by the notary official that serves to prove that the acknowledgment occurred.
Oath, affirmation, and jurat – the official written statement by a notary public that he or she has administered and witnessed an oath or affirmation for an oath of office, or on an affidavit – that is, that a person has sworn to or affirmed the truth of information contained in a document, under penalty of perjury, whether that document is a lengthy deposition or a simple statement on an application form.
Certified copy – a copy (often a photocopy) of a primary document, that has on it an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the primary document. It does not certify that the primary document is genuine, only that it is a true copy of the primary document. A certified copy was designed for administrative convenience. A certified copy may be required for official government or court purposes and for commercial purposes. It avoids the owner of important documents (especially identity documents) giving up possession of those documents which might mean a risk of their loss or damage.
Requirements for notary services:
- The person whose signature is being notarized must be present.
- A blank document cannot be notarized.
- The person whose signature is being notarized must have a valid ID.
- The document must be signed in the presence of the notary and in the state of Missouri.
- I cannot certify any documents that state on the front that they cannot be reproduced.
- If additional witnesses are required to sign the document, it is your responsibility to provide said witnesses.
