"How to Complete a Jurat"You can expand the video window by selecting the square on the lower right section of the video.
When a signer presents a document to a notary
for notarization and the document includes a "Jurat", it means that the notary must ask the signer to swear and oath the the contents of the document are true. An example of the oath might be: "Do you swear, or affirm, under penalty
of perjury, that the contents within this document are true to the best of your knowledge, so help you God?".
If you decide to omit the reference to God, the oath becomes an "affirmation" which instead
appeals to the conscience of the signer rather than an oath to a higher power. You may need to know the difference between an Oath and an Affirmation on the exam since we can use either. There is no state-required wording for this
oath or affirmation, just a necessity to be able to communicate directly with the signer.
This video will help you with all of the requirement of completing this important notarial function and will also help you in filling out this notary form.
