Phonetics: cer·tif·i·cate \(ˌ)sər-'ti-fi-kət\
There are various types of notary certificates. Notary certificate wording can be embedded at the end of a document, or attached on a separate piece of paper. There are certificates with various types of formats and wordings. All certificates have to have some form of official notarial verbiage from the state (or within the state guidelines) where the notarization is taking place. There is separate wording for Acknowledgments, Jurats, Protests, Oaths, Affirmations, and other notary acts. Additionally, certificate forms may have some other helpful wording that the company who crafted the form thought would be helpful. Many Jurat forms have room for a statement that the affiant is to swear to. Copy certification by document custodian is a form of Jurat where additional wording was added on the form to customize it for particular uses.
