Wyoming Notary Acknowledgment Form

The Wyoming notary acknowledgment form is a device that a notary public will use for the purpose of verifying signatures on official documents. It provides legal evidence that the individuals involved in the transaction have been identified and that they have signed the documents under their own volition.  Notaries will often acknowledge mortgages, powers of attorney, deeds, and other papers which require legal authentication. In order to have a signature authenticated, the requesting parties must bring their documents to a notary public and provide satisfactory identification. The notary will then complete the acknowledgment form to verify their signatures.
