A Maine notary acknowledgment form officially states that a notary public acknowledged the signing of a document. The form includes the notarization date, location, the signer, and the notary’s information. Notary acknowledgments are used to verify the signing party’s identity and to confirm that they are signing for the purposes stated in the document.
A notary public’s commission is valid for seven years (§ 1922(4)).
