OR House Bill 2362

Notary Law Update: OR House Bill 2362

State: Oregon

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.

Signed:  June 01, 2007

Effective:  January 01, 2008

Chapter: 284

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.
