Nebraska Rev. Stat. Sec. 64-105.03 (2) states, “If notarial certificate wording is not provided or indicated for a document, a notary public who is not an attorney shall not determine the type of notarial act or certificate to be used.”
The Secretary of State’s Office is providing samples of the statutory short forms of acknowledgement that are found in Neb. Rev. Stat. Sec. 64-206. The office also is providing samples of acknowledgements for signature by mark.
If you, as a notary, are presented with a document to be notarized that does not have an attestation clause, you should suggest to the principal:
Note: Depending on the type of document to be notarized, an acknowledgement may not be adequate if the attestation clause is required to be a "sworn statement." If questions arise, please direct the principal to seek legal advice.
