11.4 Administration of Oaths.
USCIS officers are authorized to administer oaths, pursuant to
of the Act. In addition to certain applications which must be sworn to under oath, officers routinely conduct adjustment of status and naturalization interviews under oath. Sworn statements taken from the petitioner, beneficiary, applicant or other parties may also be required. In addition to oaths administered by officers, USCIS recognizes oaths administered for immigration purposes by authorized military personnel as provided by Article 136 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. The list of authori
zed military officers includes: judge advocates, law specialists, adjutants, commanding officers and other designated by regulation.
The application forms for immigration benefits and regulations at
8 CFR 103.2(a)(2)
require that each application and petition be signed by the applicant. By signing the form, the applicant or petitioner certifies, under penalty of perjury, that the information contained on the application and in all supporting documents is true and correct.
