Affidavit of Lost Document basics

Despite our best efforts we often lose important documents. Maybe you accidentally tossed it or maybe you simply misplaced it, but either way, an Affidavit of Lost Document can help you get a new one. If you need a certified, original, copy from a court you'll probably need an Affidavit of Lost Document.

Use the Affidavit of Lost Document document if:

  • You lost a court document and need a certified replacement.

You likely wouldn't have heard about an Affidavit of Lost Document unless you needed one. Losing an important document is stressful, but don't worry, the recovery process is easy. Oftentimes it's as simple as making a statement under oath to get yourself a new certified copy of your lost document. The courts have to make sure you really lost it; after all, it takes a bit of time and administrative work to certify a new official document. The good news is once you officially file for a new document, you can usually get it reasonably fast. Maybe you need it for a custody battle, maybe you lost proof of your marriage, or maybe you're finally getting around to changing your passport. An Affidavit of Lost Document can help you out when your filing system hasn't lived up to expectations.
