Colorado Notarial Certificate – Verification of Oath or Affirmation

The Colorado notarial certificate (verification of oath or affirmationis a tool used by a notary public to prove that an oath or affirmation was made by the individual signing a document. The verification of oath or affirmation, or “Jurat” as it is often called, proves that the individual personally appeared before a notary public, established their identity, and made an oath or affirmation to the truthfulness of the document. Unlike a notary acknowledgement certificate, the verification of oath or affirmation may only be completed if the item requiring notarization is signed by the individual in the notary’s presence.

Note: As of July 1, 2018, Colorado notaries shall adhere to the laws outlined in the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA). The notarial certificate available on this page has been created in accordance with the RULONA.

Laws – § 12-55-208 (After July 1, 2018, notaries must reference the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts).
