North Dakota Notarial Certificate – Verification Upon Oath or Affirmation

The North Dakota notarial certificate for verification upon oath or affirmation, also known as a “jurat,” is filled out by a notary public when administering an oath or affirmation. This type of notarial act is performed by a notary who witnesses an individual making a sworn statement, of which they must also sign a written copy. Both the signing of the document and the swearing to the truthfulness of its contents must be performed in the notary’s presence. The oath or affirmation is made under penalty of perjury, and a person who makes a false statement under oath may be subject to criminal charges. The notarization is complete when the notary has filled out the notarial certificate and affixed their official signature and stamp/seal.
