A Commissioner for Oaths in Alberta is appointed under the Notaries and Commissioners Act and their service is typically required when a person needs a document to be witnessed and to administer the oaths undertaking a legal document such as a affidavit or declaration.
The duties of a Commissioner for Oaths are to verify the identification of the signer, verify the signer is in fact the correct person said within the document, and then takes oath to state they witnessed the person signing. A Commissioner for Oaths cannot provide any legal advice nor can they sign on your behalf.
If you are in need of a document for use outside of the Province of Alberta, or outside of the Country of Canada, then your document should be sworn by a Notary Public rather than a commissioner for oaths.
*A commissioner for oaths is not the same a notary public, however, a notary public can act as a commissioner for oaths.
A commissioner for oaths can sign and swear/affirm the divorce documents in Alberta with you, as a lawyer is not required to sign the documents.
