Minnesota notary acknowledgment is a form that proves the authenticity and validity of someone’s signature. The acknowledgment form is filled out by a notary public, who’s responsible for verifying the signer’s identity and ensuring that they understand what they’re signing. An acknowledgment form includes the date, the signer’s name, the location of acknowledgment, and the notary public’s signature and commission information (official title, commission expiration date).

The commission of a notary public is valid for 5 years after the date it was issued (§ 359.02).
