Making an Affidavit Form
An Affidavit is simply a written, notarized sworn statement. An Affidavit can be used for nearly any reason such as to attest of someone's death or birth, to state a place of residence, or to be entered as evidence in a court trial.
Our Affidavit forms allow you to submit any type of statement and can be customized to any state. To use this form, simply fill in a few items of information and take it to a notary public to be signed and notarized.

They should also possess the legal ID required for the notary services such as a state-issued driver's license or ID, U.S. Military ID, Resident alien ID or U.S. passport.
In most cases, no. Affidavits are simple to make. Our document builder can generate the letter for you easily after you submit a bit of information. It just needs to be signed and notarized to be valid. If stakes are high, you may benefit from having a lawyer review the statement that is to be signed. They may be able to suggest edits to the statement before it is signed that may help your case.
