Commissioner of Oaths for affidavits & documents

Most sworn declarations and statements may be commissioned in the Town Clerk's Division by a Commissioner of Oaths.

A Commissioner of Oaths (also known as commissioner for taking affidavits) is not the same as a notary public. A Commissioner has authority only to administer oaths and take affidavits. A notary public has much broader authority. If your document requires the signature of a notary, or you require certified copies of documents, then you will need to contact a lawyer or a notary.

The person signing the affidavit must show government issued identification that contains a current photo and a signature, such as a valid driver's license or passport. You are required to sign in the presence of the commissioner


The fee for commissioning affidavits/documents is as follows:

  • 1-5 pages - $30.51
  • 6-10 pages - $51.98
  • 11-20 pages - $75.71
  • 21+ pages - $89.27

*Please note: Fees are subject to change without notice.
