We are registered as Commissioner for Oaths to swear legal and other documents.
There is no need to make an appointment with us when you need a document witnessed by a Commissioner for Oaths. All you need to do is telephone to ensure that a solicitor is around and immediately, call over to our legal offices located in Castlecomer, County Kilkenny. There is a fee for this work, and we should be able to give you an idea when you first telephone.
When calling you must sign in our presence and bring with you to show the Commissioner for Oaths, your passport, residency permit and two utility bills to prove your address. You cannot bring a document signed by someone else and ask the Commissioner to sign it.
In addition, all these documents executed by the Commissioner are “Oaths”. So if you are religious, you must bring your religious book ( Bible, Koran etc.) with you and you will be asked to swear on it that you are telling the truth. Otherwise (where you’ve no religion), you will complete an affirmation that you are telling the truth. If you execute a document which is untrue then the consequences are the same as perjury in a court case.
In order to have some document witnessed by a Commissioner, you need to bring the original and a copy to the Commissioner.
