Oaths And Affirmations

Certifying Certain Events

During an acknowledgment, the signer personally appears before us at the time of notarization to be positively identified and to declare — or “acknowledge” — that the signature on the document is theirs and that they signed willingly.

Alternatively, the signer may sign the document before bringing it to us and declare — or acknowledge — to us that the signature on the document is theirs.

In some cases, we may simply need to administer an oath or affirmation orally, rather than as part of a jurat​, affidavit or other written document. The purpose of administering a verbal oath or affirmation is to compel truthfulness.

An oath is a solemn pledge to a Supreme Being. An affirmation is a solemn pledge on the individual’s personal honor. 

We may certify that an event has occurred or an act has been performed based on our personal knowledge or “satisfactory evidence,” which often refers to the oath or affirmation of a credible witness personally known to us. When relying on the oath or affirmation of a witness,  we will have the witness swear an oath or affirmation that the event occurred or the act was performed before signing document documenting that event or act.

Certain Protests

By certifying or attesting a copy of a document we are verifying that the document in question is an exact copy of another document. To do so, we must compare the copy with the original document and determine that the copy is a full, true and accurate transcription or reproduction of the original.

We can witness a signature taking place by having the signing party physically present to sign the document or if the document is already signed then the signing party can have the signature attested instead.

A Washington notary is only allowed to certify and note protest of negotiable instruments under the direct supervision of a licensed attorney or a licensed financial institution such as a bank. This act requires specialized training and specific circumstances, so only notaries who are acting under the narrow circumstances permitted by statute duty should perform this act. Therefore, we’ll perform this service only under the direct supervision of a licensed attorney or licensed financial institution.
