How should the Attestation Clause be completed?
You should complete the attestation clause to show the date on
which, and place where, the oath or declaration was taken.
You should add your signature below the attestation clause
(adding your name in block capitals if the signature is unclear),
and indicate the capacity in which you are acting, i.e.
commissioner for oaths.
You should initial any amendments in the text of the affidavit
or declaration in the margin, and should sign the certificates
identifying any exhibits.
In special circumstances, for example the individual swearing is
blind, illiterate or does not speak English; the wording of the
attestation clause will need to be varied. Precedents can be found
in the usual practitioner texts.
