Default Who can notarize forms? Mr. Miller? Anyone?

Been on the phone all day trying to find a notary public/commissioner of oaths in my
area of the UK..almost impossible, they certainly do not come a dime a dozen here
like they do in Canada. Who can notarize the declarations made by family members and
declaration to return to Canada? Does it have to be a notary public/COA or can it be
someone like say a police officer, bank official, local authority member etc? Any
lawyer? Please give me a hand!

So many questions I know...but thank you to everyone who is helping me out!! The
forms are almost ready to go out so soon it's only the waiting game! ) Krystal

it needs to be a person legally empowered to administer an oath. generally, lawyers can do it. i doubt if the other people you mentioned are empowered to administer an oath.

An English Notary is a different animal from a N. American Notary in that their
business is to validate any fact upon evidence, not just for example signatures and
as such their work tends not to be at a personal level. This is why they are rare.
You should not ask for a notary.

What you need to do is validate your signature, therefore you are seeking the
services of a Commissioner for Oaths. Most senior law clerks and most lawyers are
Commissioners for Oaths. They are anything but rare.

Perhaps this will help.

G'day, all! In a recent article, Kev ([email protected]) said:

In Australia, you could pop in to any courthouse and they almost always had
someone there who could witness your signature, affirmation, etc. Since Aus & UK
are so close, maybe that may be the case there... HTH

A Commissioner for Oaths is not enough. You MUST have a Notary. It is not just your
signature they are witnessing. They need to validate all your employment, personal
and other documents - proof that they have seen the originals and agree that they
are genuine.

I did a search online and found hundreds of Notaries. They are in just about every
town in England. I live in a little market town and we have 3 of our own!

Get the details online. Far cheaper and easier than ringing round.

Good luck.
