What is an Affidavit of Character?

An Affidavit of Character is a legal document that can be used to provide a character reference under oath. Also called an Affidavit of Good Moral Character, this document is your sworn declaration that the person in question is upright and moral. You may be asked to provide this statement as part of a legal or administrative process, such as a child custody case, an adoption, or even a high-profile job offer. When you sign an Affidavit of Character, be sure that you truly believe everything you write. Lying or exaggerating the truth in a sworn statement can result in charges of perjury.

When to use an Affidavit of Character:

  • You've been asked to provide a declaration or statement about another person's character under oath as part of a contract or legal process.
  • Someone has asked you to make a sworn statement of their good and moral character.
