Yes you do. As I said previously:

"If there's no language already contained in the document, you CAN use your ack or jurat stamp in lieu of using a loose certificate if there is room for it. If there's not enough room, attach a loose certificate."

If the documents your signer is signing are Affidavits, chances are they are going to require a jurat. The document *should* have the jurat language already contained in it. If not, your signer has to let you know if they want a jurat or acknowledgement as it's illegal for you to make that decision -

If there's no language already contained in the document, you CAN use your ack or jurat stamp in lieu of using a loose certificate if there is room for it. If there's not enough room, attach a loose certificate.

ALL notarizations you do require your seal, but your seal must be affixed to a notary certificate - in other words you can't just sign and stamp something without a proper notarial cert in place.

And yes, the witness MUST be there when it's signed - and since you notarize at the same time as the signing, they'll be there for that - especially if their signature needs to be notarized.

As for a blog or website? All of this information is in your CA Handbook, workbook and newsletter; knowing California's strict requirements about classes and testing, you should know all this already. Since you admit you're new you may want to go back and review


Good luck.

Hello All,

Good morning fellas . I am new notary based in California. I am very humbled to be part of this amazing forum.
Coming to point , i need to notarize one of friends documents needed for passport renewal (indian origin) and they require
Notarized No Status Affidavit
Notarized affidavit for change in name

1) My question is do i need to use acknowledgment/jurat stamps for any of these or just my Stamp is good enough.
2) I believe the witness in "No status Affidavit" should be present at the time of notarize , am i right ?

General: Is there any blog/website which explains when to use ack/jurat stamps for affidavits ?

Thanks in advance
Prap G
