Can I Notarize A ‘Corporate Structure’ Jurat?

NNA Hotline Tip logo

The company that I work for has asked me to “notarize their corporate structure.” Could I notarize a jurat for the Chief Financial Officer after she signs a document confirming that it is a correct representation of our corporate structure?L.N., Missouri

Yes, you could do that. Your CFO would sign and swear an oath or affirmation attesting to the truthfulness of the document and then you would notarize your CFO’s signature.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors

Notary is not responsible for the contents of the documents and is only responsible that signer has signed in his presence. Verification of truthfulness is not his responsibly.
