What is an Affidavit?
An Affidavit is a written statement that is sworn to be true (ie an oath). An Affidavit must be signed by the affiant (ie the person making the oath) and also the notary public or other judicial officer that has administered the oath.
Affidavits must be made voluntarily and under either religious oaths or affirmations. They must, therefore, be sworn (or affirmed) in front of a person commissioned to receive oaths (eg a notary public or solicitor). Both the affiant and the person with the authority to administer an oath must then sign the Affidavit for it to become legally binding.
