Texas Notarial Certificate – Jurat

The Texas Jurat is no different from the standard notarial certificate found in most states across the country; it contains a statement which dictates that the principal signer has sworn to (or affirmed) the truthfulness of a statement (an affidavit) and that they have signed in the notary public’s presence. The process of notarization requires that the principal complete a statement and perform an oath or affirmation. An oath is swearing before a deity to the accuracy of a statement under penalty of perjury. An affirmation carries the same legal implications as an oath, only it is based on the principal’s honor and has no religious connotations. Following the verbal statement, the notary will complete their jurat, sign it, and administer their official seal.
