Acknowledgements

An acknowledgment is used to ensure that the signer of a document is who they claim to be and has voluntarily signed the document.

 

Jurat

The purpose of a jurat is for a signer to swear or affirm that the contents of a document are true. Depending on the jurisdiction, it also can be known as an affidavit or a verification on oath or affirmation.

 

Oaths/Affirmations

An oath is a solemn pledge to a Supreme Being. An affirmation is a solemn pledge on the individual’s personal honor. Again, the choice should be made by the signer.

Copy Certification

A copy certification confirms that a reproduction of an original document is a full, true, and accurate transcription or reproduction of the original. Documents requiring copy certification may include: diplomas, driver’s licenses, leases, contracts, vehicle titles, Social Security cards, medical records and bills of sale.

NEW FLORIDA NOTARY PUBLIC LAW

The Florida legislature recently enacted House Bill 409, which amends various statutes that allowed for remote online notarization in Florida. This legislature amended the requirements for notary acknowledgement forms effective January 1, 2020. Florida Notaries must use new certificate wording for acknowledgments and jurats that indicates if the signer appeared in person or by audiovisual communication for the notarization such as remote online notarization. Documents and affidavits notarized using the old wording may not be accepted for recording and may be subject to questioning regarding the validity of the notarial act.
