Making an Affidavit of Lost Document

  • What is an Affidavit of Lost Document?

    An Affidavit of Lost Document is a sworn statement that is used to confirm that a document was lost and to request a replacement. Losing an important document is stressful, but the recovery process doesn't have to be. An Affidavit of Lost Document is submitted to notify a court, registrar's office or other agency that a document has been lost and that the affiant (the person making the affidavit) would like a certified copy of the original. This Affidavit provides the name and date of the lost document and certifies that the affiant has taken all measures to find the original document but has been unable to locate it.

    Other names for this document: Affidavit of Missing Document, Affidavit of Loss
