Amidst the very, very, very busy day had here at GreenvilleNotary.com, a call was received an hour before what was believed to be the last signing left… A mentee of Owner Sonita Leak called around 8pm to have an emergency document for court notarized. Because the document was a typed letter void of notarial language, the mentee brought along her National Notary Association certificates with the State of South Carolina verbiage for an affiant. An affiant is the person who gives an affidavit.
What is an affidavit? An affidavit, by Wikipedia’s terms is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorized to do so by law.
