Create a high quality document online now!

A Minnesota notary acknowledgment form is a document which is used to authenticate the signing of a legal instrument. Certain legal documents, such as a transfer of ownership, a living trust form, or a power of attorney, may require notarization in order to be valid. In order for an individual to have their document notarized, they will need to fill out their document and bring it, along with the notary acknowledgment form, to a notary public. After identifying themselves to the notary, the individual can sign the document with the notary as a witness. Upon witnessing the signing of the document, the notary will fill out the acknowledgment form, furnishing it with their signature and seal.
