An Oklahoma notary acknowledgment is used by a notary public to confirm that an individual signing a document is who they say they are and their signature is authentic. The notary will review the signing party’s identification and ensure the signature is given willingly before signing the acknowledgment and affixing their seal. The completed form must include the notarial officer’s signature, seal (if any), title, and commission expiry date.
A notary public in Oklahoma must renew their commission every four years (§ 49-1).
