Updated August 03, 2022

An Oklahoma notary acknowledgment form is a declaration that a signature is authentic. This method of authentication is often required when dealing with items of great value such as a mortgage, living trust, deed, or vehicle title. Before a document may be notarized, the notary public must verify the individual’s identification to confirm their identity unless the individual is personally known to the notary. Once the document has been signed, the notary may complete the acknowledgment form and return the authenticated document back to the individual.

Notary Handbook – The Oklahoma “Notary Public Guide” offers legal information related to the requirements in becoming a notary as well as the steps necessary to perform proper notarial acts.

How to Notarize in Oklahoma

Step 1 – The first step in notarizing a document is to locate a notary public within the State. In Oklahoma, a notary public can be found at several locations including the following:

Step 2 – All documents being notarized should be completely filled in to the extent of the signature area which should remain empty. Bring the documents to the notary public and they will review your submission. You may be required to pay a fee for their services.

Step 3 – At this point, the notary will request that you identify yourself by providing personal identification. However, if the notary knows you personally, they may instead draft a statement indicating their personal knowledge of your identity which in turn will negate the need for you to provide identification.

Step 4 – After the notary has reviewed your documents and confirmed your identity, they will ask that you sign the documents being notarized. The notary will then fill in the acknowledgment form to include the information of the notarial act as well as their signature, commission expiration date, title (and rank), and seal/stamp.

Step 5 – The notarized documents should be returned to the individual once the acknowledgment form has been completed by the notary public.
