What Is an Affidavit?

An Affidavit is a written statement of facts that is sworn on oath. The individual who swears that the information written in the affidavit is true is called an affiant or deponent, and they must sign this document before a notary public. Lying in an affidavit, as in any unlawful oath, is considered perjury. The notary public is the person authorized by the state to verify that the person who claims to have signed the document is the same who signed it.

How to Write an Affidavit?

Certain legal requirements must be met for the affidavit to be valid. When lawyers use affidavits in motions and court filings, they may design this document to meet their specific needs at the time. In other circumstances, you may draft your own document by using affidavit forms that contain specific information to fulfill the intended purpose. The affidavit, which may be written in the first or third person, must state only relevant facts in a concise and organized way. Furthermore, the document must assert that everything in it is true.

The deponent who signs the sworn statement must be a competent person (which in most cases means they must be of legal age and of sound mind). In addition, they must sign the affidavit voluntarily and without coercion, and must have firsthand knowledge of the information they are attesting to. An authorized person, who could be a notary public, a lawyer, or Justice of the Peace, must be present when the document is signed. The foot of the last page of the document, known as the jurat, must include the following details: the full name and signature of the deponent, whether the affidavit is sworn or affirmed, the date and place where the deponent signs the affidavit, and the full name and profession of the authorized person, as well as their signature. Moreover, if any alteration, correction, addition, or amendment is made to the affidavit, both the deponent and the authorized witness must initial each alteration to confirm they are valid.
