Effective: January 01, 2008
Chapter: 284

Summary

House Bill 2362 allows petitions, reports and accounts filed in proceedings before a probate court to be signed under penalty of perjury instead of being “verified” before a Notary or notarial officer.

Affects

Amends Oregon Revised Statutes Sections 111.205, 111.215, 113.045, 113.145, 113.155, 115.003, 116.083, 116.093, 116.253, 117.015 and 125.325

Changes
  1. Allows petitions, reports and accounts filed in proceedings before a probate court to be signed under penalty of perjury instead of being “verified,” a procedure which typically requires a signature to be made in the presence of a notarial officer with administration of an oath or affirmation to the signer.
  2. Modifies the statutory Guardian Report form required to be completed annually by a guardian of a protected person by removing the Notary jurat wording required by previous law for a verification and adding the written declaration under penalty of perjury.
Analysis

Oregon House Bill 2362 is being reported in this New Law Alert because the NNA has witnessed a trend of legislation this year that removes prior requirements for notarization and replaces them with a statement signed under penalty of perjury.
