A Commissioner for Oaths (in other appellations, Notary Public or Justice of the Peace) is an official appointed by the Ministry of Justice of the Commonwealth of Nations, who is authorized to take affidavits, administer oaths and declarations, verify legal documents, validate the authenticity of the signature and so on.
The essential functions of a Commissioner for Oaths are:
to make sure that the evidence in question is in written form (the affidavit);
to establish that the person in question has read the affidavit and fully understands its contents;
to verify the identity of the declarant by checking his/her ID document (a passport, driving license, medical card, student I.D. card, etc.);
to require the person to swear that the affidavit is true by raising right hand and repeating the words of the oath;
to make sure that the declarant signs the document with his/her authentic signature;
If you need to have your document certified or your declaration signed before the authorized official, please feel free to contact us.
We charge a very symbolic price for this service and normally accept walk-in clients.
