What is an Acknowledgment?
The purpose of an acknowledgment is for a signer, whose identity has been verified, to declare to a Notary or Notarial Officer that he or she has willingly signed a document. The signer may either sign the document before appearing before you, or in your presence.
One of the most important duties of the Notary is to administer oaths and affirmations, which are solemn promises of truthfulness made by a signer, witness, or new officeholder. An oath is a promise to a deity and an affirmation is a pledge on one's personal honor.
The purpose of a jurat also known in some states as a “verification upon oath or affirmation” is for a signer to swear to or affirm the truthfulness of the contents of a document to a Notary or Notarial Officer. You must administer a spoken oath or an affirmation, and the signer must respond out loud.
A certified copy is a copy of a primary document that has on it an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the primary document.
It does not certify that the primary document is genuine, only that it is a true copy of the primary document.
