I doubt the signer needs to be "named" in the document. However, when the signature is not in the English Language I request they hand print the name in English under the non-English signature.

I totally agree the ack can be separate or stamped/handwritten on the actual document. It's (IMHO) a "best practice" when using a "separate" ack to notary stamp both on the ack and half on the ack and half on the underlying document (acks are best 1/3 of page size) - then the ack cannot be "moved" to a different document.

I also half/half my embosser to REALLY "marry" the ack to the doc.

A signer presents a hand written document in Arabic to a notary. There is no Acknowledgment on the document. The notary insists on attaching an Acknowledgment form with state appropriate wording. The signer protested and complained to us about the notary. I wrote back stating that the notary was within their rights, and that legally an attached Acknowledgment form is as acceptable as a stamp on the actual document.

I told the signer that they need an attorney to draft an acceptable looking document in Arabic (or whatever language they like), and then have the English language Acknowledgment wording as well. Legally, I am not sure how they will be able to prove that the signer was named in the document which is a requirement for an Acknowledged signature. Hmmm.

On the other hand, the Acknowledgment wording could also be hand written... Not very professional though!!!
