What is an Affidavit of Correction?
An Affidavit of Correction is a legal document that you can use to fix inaccurate information on an official record. If you have made an error on an official court or government document, you can use an Affidavit of Correction to address it. Typically, this Affidavit will outline what the document is, how the error appears on the document, and what the correct information is. Our Affidavit of Correction Form can be used to correct mistakes related to DMV records, such as your car registration or title; property records, like a deed or lien; and vital records, like a birth or death certificate. Before using this document, be sure to check with the state agency that handles your record to determine their preferred or required process for making the correction.
When to use an Affidavit of Correction:
- You submitted or filed a document that you now realize has some incorrect information and you would like to inform the court or other party of the error and the correct information.
