Legal services – Commissioning and notarizing
We provide commissioning of affidavits and notarial services (to those living on a low income).
Commissioning a document is the most common request. If you need to swear an affidavit you will likely need it commissioned.
We will do a straight commission of a document (i.e. the document has already been prepared and only requires our legal worker to sign that they witnessed your oath). We cannot provide commissioning services that require us to prepare a document (unless it is for a case we are directly working on for you).
Notarizing means certifying that a document is a true copy of an original. Only lawyers can notarize documents.
We will provide notarial services that do not require us to prepare a document.
Making an appointment
Contact us if you need a commission or notarial service. You must bring identification to the appointment, along with the document requiring signature. You must not sign the document ahead of time, we must witness your signature.
Those who qualify for our services financially do not have to pay for either of these services. If you do not qualify financially, we can provide you with referrals.
