A Louisiana notary acknowledgment form is an official statement confirming that a signature was verified by a notary public. The form records the notarization details, including the date, where it took place, the parties involved, and a statement indicating that the signer willingly signed the document.
In Louisiana, notaries are appointed for life and their commission does not expire (Louisiana SOS).
