Default common-law form

hi all, maybe im having a blonde day but on the common-law form it asks for province/state or territory..now obviously this doesnt seem to apply to us in the UK so do i leave it blank or do i need to put something in there.I would leave it blank, anyone know anything different.
thanx

County? It's the UK equivalent of those subdivisions in other countries.

Hi, we left it blank when we did ours - wasn't a problem! Should only cost you about £5 to get a 'commissioner of oaths' to sign the document too, you don't need a solicitor....Hope this helps.

Yep, £5 is all it cost us.

The Law Society fixes the fees that can be charged to swear an Affidavit or to affirm a Statutory Declaration in England and Wales. It does not matter if one has a solicitor or a commissioner for oaths do it, the maximum they can charge is five pounds plus two pounds for each exhibit attached. Alternatively, one can pop along to a local county court office and get one sworn before a court officer for free !!!!

In Canada (at least in Alberta) there is no such fixed fee so the cost will depend upon the lawyer/commisioner you use. Most banks have commissioners and, if you use your own bank, they will usually do it for free (you may also get a coffee and some donuts)

HTH

I did not know that. It seemed awfully cheap to get anything done by a solicitor in London for that. No doubt if it was down to the individual solicitor it would be a five-figure fee.

re the common law form sent out by immigration London, do we complete the top box stating "province/state/territory" or do we start below with the names etc. I assume like others I pay the £5 and get my solicitor to sign the form. Any ideas??
