Re: POA

If your state notary law doesn't address specific verbiage, I'd use whatever is normal or required for the type of notarization requested. (Most states prohibit us from determining whether the notarization should be an acknowledgment or a jurat, unless we're also a lawyer.)

Having said that, when it comes to notarizing a POA document, there should be more to it than just completing a notary certificate, regardless of what our state law does or doesn't say. Hopefully this is something you already know, but personally, I take a little extra care with determining the mental competence and willingness of a signer for POA documents. There's nothing in my state law that addresses this and I use our standard certificate verbiage. BUT... POA documents are the ones mostly likely to be contested and create legal and other headaches for the signer - and the notary, if challenged. So it just makes sense to me to do whatever I can to prevent ending up in the middle of that type of situation.
