There are three most common type of notary, California Notary Acknowledgment and Jurat Information

 

Jurat information

A Jurat is a type of notary act where the signer must swear under oath before a notary public. Jurat certificate wording must accompany all Jurat notary acts either within the document itself. after the signature area(s), or on an attached certificate form. The new California Jurat requires the signer to be positively identified. It not longer allows the signer to be identified on the basis of being personally known to the Notary. Here is the new California Jurat wording below. Also find below the template for the Copy of Certification by a Document Custodian.

Acknowledgment information

An acknowledgment is a notary act where the signer acknowledges signing a document before a notary public. The act of presenting a signed document before a notary public and asking the notary public to notarize the signature constitutes acknowledging signing the document. The document may be signed before being in the presence of the notary, however, the signer must appear before the notary public to sign the notary journal and receive the affixation of the notary seal on the notary certificate. The words "personally known to me" have been removed from the new acknowledgment wording. Perhaps there was too much ambiguity as to how well you have to know a person before they are "personally known". I found that with strangers, if you meet them a few times for notaries, and then meet them another time, you will remember them. However, if you see them several years later, you will not remember them. Therefore, it seems that proper identification makes better sense than personally knowing someone. Failure to get a signer properly identified constitutes perjury and could lead to a fine, since you could not have positively identified them without proper identification. Here is the new wording for a California acknowledgment certificate.
