  1. Sign this document in front of a local notary public. If you're outside of the US, contact the local US embassy or consulate to have it signed and notarized in front of a notarizing officer. This affidavit should be properly and correctly notarized. Typically, the notarial certificate of documents should contain these seven items. In practice, improper notarization may result in invalid documents or rejection of subsequent authentication requests. This will cost the applicant extra time and money. It is advised to consult a professional for help.
