May a Notary Public determine which type of notarial certificate should be attached?

No. A notary public who is not an attorney should only complete a notarial certificate, which is already in the document, or type, or attach a certificate of the maker’s choosing. If a notary public were presented with a document that did not contain a certificate Instead, the notary may allow the person for whom the notarization is performed to choose among the sample certificates provided to the notary with the notary’s commission. The notarial certificate must be in English. You may also contact the issuer to ask what type of notary certificate they will accept (Acknowledgment or Jurt) before you meet the Notary Public.
