The signing of a Jurat is accompanied by swearing an oath to God or giving an affirmation on your own honor to the truthfulness of the contents of the document. In California you have two choices to swear by. You must choose, I cannot chose for you. Examples below.


Sample Oath:

“Do you solemnly swear that the statements in this/these document(s) is/are true and correct to the best of your knowledge and belief, so help you God?” (An audible or written response is required)

                 ~ or ~

Sample Affirmation on Your Own Honor:       

“Do you solemnly affirm that the statements in this/these document(s) is/are true and correct to the best of your knowledge and belief?”

(An audible or written response is required)


New boxed verbiage for the Acknowledgment and Jurat added January 01, 2015.      

This boxed paragraph must appear verbatim on the certificates per Senate Bill No. 1050, Sections 1189 and 1195 of the Civil Code and to amend Government Code 8202.}
































            

      






 


The following is the notarial certificate wording to be used in the State of California.  

There are two certificates to choose from.


If your document does not have notarial wording present, what do you do? Which of the two certificates do you need? To make the choice you can consult with an attorney, contact the document’s requesting agency to see what they require, or choose for yourself. As a California Notary Public I cannot choose for you.

The Difference Explained

An ACKNOWLEDGMENT insures that the signature on the document can be trusted by the receiving agency.

A JURAT, or verification upon oath, compels you, the signer, to truthfulness regarding the content of the document. You, as the signer, are required to take an oath or affirm on your own honor before the Notary in order for the receiving agency to trust your statement(s) within the document.

Jurats are often performed on affidavits and depositions.


FYI: A notary public seal and signature cannot be affixed to a document without the correct notarial wording.


A Notary Public or other officer completing this certificate verifies only the identity of the individual who signed the document

to which this certificate is attached, and not the truthfulness, accuracy, or validity of that document.
