Notary Public Terminology

People often misuse the term notary, and those terms associated with it.floridahandbook Notaries actually do not notarize anything. It is a common misconception, and a common term thrown around, but notarizing a form is not actually what you do; though, there is nothing wrong with the term, notarizing does not encompass the entire act. You perform a notarial act; an oath or an affirmation is given or an affirmation is taken from the signer. The statement completed by you when you perform a notarial act is called a “certificate;” this includes everything except the oath or affirmation. When the act is an oath or affirmation it becomes a “jurat.” If you have any questions about what acts you can or will perform once you become a notary public, please do not hesitant to contact us!
