Affidavit of Residence basics

There are times when a court or a business will ask you to prove where you live. If you would like to verify your residence to change your children's school district, provide proof for a court or other institution, or if you would like to verify the residence of a deceased person, then an Affidavit of Residence may be the right document for you.

What is a Residency Affidavit?

A Residency Affidavit is a legal document that you can use to verify your residence and the residency of anyone living with you. An Affidavit will often be used in response to a school, financial institution, court, or other entity's request for proof of residency.

You may also need to use this Affidavit to verify where someone lived before their death. Certain agencies or institutions often ask you to verify the residency of a deceased family member before releasing the family member's accounts or funds. In this case, a copy of the death certificate may be required as an attachment to the Affidavit.

How do I write an Affidavit of Residence?

Making an Affidavit of Residence online is simple. Just answer a few questions, and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

  • How long has the Affiant resided in the county named?
  • Who currently resides with the Affiant?
  • Where will this Affidavit be signed?

If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions, and save your document for later.

What is a notarized Proof of Residency?

A notarized proof of residency is a written statement that claims the residency of an individual at a specific location, and it is signed in front of a notary public.

How do you get a notarized Affidavit of Residency?

Obtaining a notarized affidavit of residency is a fairly straightforward process. You can complete an Affidavit of Residency online through Rocket Lawyer, which will include a place for the notary to sign. To finalize your document, you simply need to find a notary public in your local area or online.
