Georgia: All Notarial Acts Must be Accompanied by the Seal

Notarial Acts Need a Seal

Each notary will be issued a duplicate original of their Certificate of Appointment for presentment to a supplier of notary seals. The presentment of such a duplicate to a supplier is necessary to obtain a notary seal.

In documenting a notarial act, a notary shall sign the notarial certification in ink exactly as the name appears on the notary commission and shall also record the exact date of the notarial act. However, in connection with attestation of deeds or other instruments pertaining to real property, the date of the notarial act shall not be required.
