Documentation

Once you are certain the Town can commission your document, you must visit the Customer Services Department in person. Note that these services are only available at 395 Mulock Drive.  The request for the Commissioner of Oaths service must be made by the same individual who will be taking the oath and signing the document. You must present one original piece of photo identification (no copies permitted) in the form of government-issued photo identification: i.e. a valid driver's license, a valid passport, which includes your address.

All documents to be commissioned must be signed in the presence of the Commissioner of Oaths.
