There is absolutely nothing difficult about completing notary functions once you become
familiar with what needs to be done. This is a sample video on the most often completed notary function, "How to Complete an Acknowledgment"
Whenever a notary is asked to notarize something, the notary will need to either complete an Acknowledgment or a Jurat. The notary wording, whether it is an Acknowledgment
or a Jurat, will usually be on the document when it is presented for notarization or it can be added. This video will help you with filling out this notary form.
Taking an Acknowledgment simply means that the signer has either
signed the document in the presence of the notary during notarization, or, if the signer
has already signed the document at a previous time, the signer must "acknowledge" signing the document to the notary by communication (oral or written if unable to speak for example) in the notary's presence. Documents requiring an
Acknowledgment do not need to be signed in the notary's presence, but the wording of the Acknowledgment is important!
