Affidavit of Residence Basics

So you've recently moved to a new place or need to prove your current residence. You can use an Affidavit of Residence to get it done. For example, let's say your child can now go to an excellent school near your new home, but the school has asked that you provide proof of your residence in the school district. Our Affidavit of Residence can help prove you live at the place you call home.

Use the Affidavit of Residence document if:

  • You would like to verify your residence in order to change your children's school district.
  • You would like to verify your residence for a court or business questioning you residency.
  • You would like to verify the death and residency of a deceased person in order to claim or release funds or other property of the deceased person.

There are times when a court or a business will ask you to prove where you live. An Affidavit of Residence is a legal document you can use to do just that: verifying your residence and the residency of anyone living with you. An Affidavit is most often 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 a death certificate may be required as an attachment to the Affidavit.

Other names for this document: Affidavit of Residency, Proof of Residence Affidavit, Residency Affidavit
