Montana notary acknowledgment is a notarial certificate that authenticates the signing of an important document. The notarization process requires the signer to personally appear before a notary public to prove their identity and declare that they signed willingly and with an understanding of the document’s purpose and contents. The notary will then fill out the acknowledgment form and attach it to the notarized document.

The term of a notary public’s commission in Montana is 4 years (§ 1-5-619(5)).

Is Online Notarization Legal in Montana?
