Swearing of Documents

You may have to swear a document there are some documents which cannot just be signed, they must be sworn. These documents are particularly important documents. Everyone wants to be sure that you have taken time to think about the truth of what is in the document. You need to be sure that you are happy to swear that what it says is true. It is an offence to swear that something is true when it is not. Swearing a document is similar to what a witness does in court when that person swears that he or she will tell the truth
