The Clerk's Department, as a public service, commissions affidavits, declarations and certifies documents.  In order to have a document commissioned, all parties required to sign the document must be present and must provide valid government-issued photo identification.

Documents cannot be signed before the Commissioner of Oaths has reviewed them.
