A jurat authenticates a signature made under oath or affirmation. A jurat proves that the signer personally appeared before the notary; the signer was positively identified by the notary; the notary placed the signer under oath; and the notary watched the signature being made. In a jurat, the notary does have to see the signer sign the document and the notary must place the signer under oath before the signer signs the document. An acknowledgment authenticates a signature. An acknowledgment proves that the signer personally appeared before a notary; the notary identified the signer; and the signature on the document matches the signature on the identification which the signer presented to you and to the signature in your journal. For an acknowledgment, the notary only has to verify the signature on the document is that of the signer. The notary does not have to watch the signature be made. more

A jurat is part of an affidavit in which the notary states that the affidavit was signed and sworn to before the notary. When a document contains a jurat, it must be signed in a notary's presence, and the document signer must swear to the truthfulness of the statement in the document. An acknowledgment is a declaration by a person that he or she has executed an instrument for the purposes stated therein. When a document contains an acknowledgment, it does not have to be signed in a notary's presence, but the document signer must still appear before the notary to acknowledge that he or she signed the document and agrees to the contents. more

A "jurat" is that part of an affidavit in which you, the notary, state that it was sworn to before you. "Acknowledgment" means a declaration by a person that he or she has executed an instrument for the purposes stated therein and, if the instrument is executed in a representative capacity, that he or she signed the instrument with proper authority and executed it as the act of the person or entity represented and identified therein. [51-109, Idaho Code] Is it legal to certify a copy of a birth, death, or marriage certificate, or a decree of divorce, as being true and correct. No. A notary can certify copies only of documents which cannot be obtained from a recorder or custodian of public documents. more
