A statutory declaration and an affidavit are both written statements of fact.
However, an affidavit is used as evidence in court. You confirm it by oath or affirmation.
If you need an affidavit, contact the court involved in your legal matter.
If you’re not sure if you need a statutory declaration or an affidavit, you can:
- ask the person or organisation that requested it from you
- get legal advice
