Passport Affidavit FormPassport Affidavit Form-The Passport affidavit is not a required part of an application for a U.S. passport under normal circumstances. The information provided on an affidavit may be used to help establish citizenship, identity, and entitlement to a U.S. passport.
*The affidavit should not be submitted in place of attainable U.S. citizenship evidence or identification.
Notary CertificatesAcknowledgement Certificate-An acknowledgment is a wording statement that is taken by a notary. It is typically used as an addendum to a legal contract or agreement. For example, a document that is signed in Florida, should have an acknowledgment because the company or legal entity requires the document to be notarized, but there simply is not enough room on the page for the signature/stamp. The Miami notary will then supply an additional form that will be signed and notarized.
Jurat Certificate-a Notary guarantees that the signer a) personally appeared before the Notary, b) was given an oath or affirmation by the Notary, and finally c) signed in the Notary's presence.
**An easy way to remember the chief difference between an acknowledgment and a jurat is using the following mnemonics device; "A Jurat is signed while "JUR-AT" my office (JUR-AT instead of 'you're at,' a jurat is signed while you're at my office). By remembering this, you will never forget that the Notary must always witness the signature when assisting with a Jurat.
Affidavit Certificate-a formal sworn statement of fact, signed by the author, who is called the affiant or deponent, and witnessed as to the authenticity of the affiant's signature by a taker of oaths, such as a notary public or commissioner of oaths. An affidavit is a type of verified statement or showing, or in other words, it contains a verification, meaning it is under oath or penalty of perjury, and this serves as evidence to its veracity and is required for court proceedings
Certified Copy Certificate-is a copy (often a photocopy) of a primary document, that has on it an endorsement or certificate that it is a true copy of the primary document. It does not certify that the primary document is genuine, only that it is a true copy of the primary document.
Document Custodian Certificate-The document custodian certifies the complete and accurate representation of the documents within its control. Document Custodians play an important roll because they must hold documents by an issuer and works directly under the issuer.
Translator Certificate-In general, a Notary Public Translator Certificate (U.S.) is one to which the translator has added a statement that the translation is true, accurate, and correct "to the best of my knowledge and ability". The statement may be made under oath, or "under penalty of perjury", and may be notarized to confirm the identity of the person signing the statement.
Witness Signature Certificate-signatures may be witnessed and recorded in the presence of a Notary Public to carry additional legal force. On legal documents, an illiterate signatory can make a "mark" (often an "X" but occasionally a personalized symbol), so long as the document is countersigned by a literate witness.
