The Florida jurat is a notarial certificate completed by a notary public upon the oath or affirmation of an individual confirming the accuracy of an affidavit. The certificate states that the person appeared before the notary public and swore to (or affirmed) the truthfulness of facts stated in the affidavit. Apart from administering the oath or affirmation, the notary’s duties include confirming the identity of the individual and witnessing the signature. With the affidavit signed and sworn to (or affirmed), the notary may execute the jurat to notarize the affidavit.
