When will I need an oaths and certification solicitor?
There are many scenarios whereby documents need to be certified so that their authenticity is confirmed. Examples include documents will be sent to an organisation or solicitor as part of ongoing transactions and court proceedings, or when an affidavit requires to be authenticated or countersigned by a Notary Public or Commissioner for Oaths.
What are the procedures for oaths and certifications?
In circumstances where an oath must be sworn, for example by an executor as part of the probate process, the person will be required to sign a document with a solicitor present and swear or affirm that the information contained within it is accurate.
When a document requires certification, for example when someone has to prove his or her identity to a third party such as another solicitor or a government department, he or she can attend an appointment with a solicitor with original copies of supporting documents such as a passport or utility bill. The solicitor will then certify that these supporting documents are genuine and can be relied upon to prove the person's identity.
Powers of Attorney
A power of attorney is a legal document which gives another person the ability to make decisions on your behalf if you are no longer able to or no longer wish to make these decisions yourself. This might be as a result of illness or because you have suffered an accident and can be put in place for a temporary period or on a permanent basis. In setting up a power of attorney, there is a requirement that a certificate provider signs the document to confirm that you have understood the effect of the power of attorney and that you have not been pressurised into setting it up. Our oaths and certification solicitors can perform this role, confirming that you have the capacity to make this choice and ensuring that your power of attorney will have legal effect if and when you need it.
