Mississippi Notary Acknowledgment Form

Updated September 01, 2023

A Mississippi notary acknowledgment form is a document that authenticates a signature. Some documents require notarization in order to certify the identity of the individual signing the document and their clear intention to do so. A public notary will witness the signing of a document before filling out the notary acknowledgment form, providing their signature and seal. Individuals may be required to obtain notarization for a transfer of property, for a living trust or will, a consent form, or a power of attorney form.
