Administering an Oath or Affirmation

Both may be notarial acts in their own right -- as "swearing in" a new public official -- or they may be part of the process of performing an acknowledgment or jurat notarization.

 

It is customary for the Notary to ask the oath-taker or affirmant to raise a right hand in a pledging gesture or to place it over one's heart.

Oaths and affirmations should be taken seriously and always administered with a degree of formality.
