Q: What is the difference between He certified that it was his wife's handwriting. and He verified that it was his wife's handwriting. ?
A: Effectively they mean the same thing: the husband said that it was his wife's handwriting... In terms of the subtle difference:

"verified" basically just means confirmed (i.e. after inspecting the writing, he confirmed it was his wife's handwriting)

"certified" implies it was an official (legally recognized) declaration or guarantee.

For example, perhaps the husband wrote a signed affidavit (a type of legal oath / affirmation) attesting to the fact that it was his wife's handwriting. In this case, the husband could be held legally culpable (responsible) and penalized if a court of law determines that he lied.
