Notary Bulletin Hotline Tip: Two Signatures On The Same Document By Kelle Clarke on February 26, 2014 in Hotline Tips If two signatures appear on one document to be notarized, do I have to create a separate jurat (or acknowledgment) for each one?- K.H., Cypress, CA If both signers appear before you, you can put both of their names on one jurat or acknowledgment certificate; for example, John Doe and Jane Doe. If they appear before you separately, however, you would need to notarize their signatures separately, on separate certificates. Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors Kelle Clarke is a Contributing Editor with the National Notary Association. Confronted with a tricky notarization?
