Affidavits and Declarations

Prepare Affidavits and Statutory Declarations with these downloadable, customizable legal forms.

 

What is an affidavit?

An affidavit is a written statement of facts confirmed by the oath of the party making the affidavit (the affiant), in front of a lawyer, notary public, commissioner for oaths or other officer who has the authority to administer oaths. If you make a false statement in an affidavit, it is considered perjury and carries the same penalty as lying on a witness stand in court.

What is a statutory declaration?

A statutory declaration is much like an affidavit, but it is affirmed rather than sworn by the person making it (the declarant), and it must be witnessed by a justice of the peace, a commissioner, a notary public, or a lawyer.

What is an acknowledgement?

An acknowledgement is a formal declaration before an authorized person (such as a notary public) that the document it is attached to is being signed as a free act and deed of the person signing it.
