A New Mexico notary acknowledgment is a document that a notary public completes when acknowledging a signature. By signing this form, the notary confirms that the individual is signing of their own free choice and that they are who they claim to be. The acknowledgment does not attest to the truthfulness of the document being signed, but instead proves the identity of the individual signing and their intent.
Commissions of notaries public must be renewed every four years (§ 14-14A-20(E)).
