Does using a Notary Public or a Commissioner for Oath serve the same purpose?

June 14, 2019

Yes, they serve the same purpose.

It is required that some legal documents get the authentication of either a Notary Public or a commissioner for oaths. Although the authentication by a Notary Public or Commissioner for Oaths serves the same purpose, there are still certain documents that specify which is acceptable for a particular transaction. Where this is the case, it’s important that the accepted form of authentication is procured.

Both the notary public and a commissioner for oaths are public officers charge with the responsibility of witnessing & acknowledging documents, administering of oaths and affirmations, verification of documents and certifying of true copies.

A document authenticated by a Notary public or a Commissioner for Oaths should have the signature, stamp and seal of the person who verified it.
