How to Draft an Affidavit

An affidavit is defined as a statement in writing that sets out the facts of a case. It sets out the evidence in a matter. It must be either sworn or affirmed, usually before a Justice of the Peace, Commissioner of Oaths or lawyer, as a true record. This swearing or affirming process is referred to as attesting. Affirming means that you state that you will tell the truth and usually that you are aware of the penalties for making a wilfully false statement.
