Does "under oath" for verified complaint requires a notary?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

I'm looking NY CPL 3020 : Verification , and it says " A verification is a statement under oath that the pleading is true . . . " Does " under oath " require a notary to sign off on it or just the boiler plate " under oath " language ( I , the undersigned certify under penalty of perjury and pursuant to the laws of the State that the foregoing statements are true and correct to the best of my knowledge ) ?
