Under Sec(NNN) NNN-NNNNSigning Document for Individual with Disability,

This answer was rated:

Under Sec(NNN) NNN-NNNNSigning Document for Individual with Disability, does the Witness for the Notary Public utilize the Certificate of Proof of Execution to fulfill Sec 121.005 of the Civil Practice and Remedies Code to acknowledge the signing of said document?
No. They must only sign as a witness on the document stating "My name is __________. I hereby acknowledge and verify that _____________has requested that the notary public stated below execute his/her signature on this document pursuant to Texas Government Code(NNN) NNN-NNNN I also verify that I have no legal or equitable interest in any real or personal property that is the subject of, or is affected by, the document being signed." Then the notary public would also notarize the witness's signature.

Thank you,

I am waiting to discuss with the notary associations president when he
returns from vacation how to/if to utilize the service. With notarial law
in Texas it can be difficult as our previous secretary of state did not
regulate much of the notaries activity, nor provide much education. I am
developing a business model to assist attorneys in which they can utilize
notaries for more than acknowledgments, but also as Deposition Officers
instead of paying the outrageous fees charged by court reporters on some of
the depositions, and also civil process - if we can get the Supreme Court's
review board to move on certifications a bit faster. : )

Good luck on that. I'd love to see deposition fees and civil process fees go down. They are an outrageous expense (especially deposition fees).
