Affidavits are sworn written statements of fact. They are the most usual way of supplying facts to a court. Affidavits are a simple means of providing information to the court, as such it is vital that your affidavit is correct factually, relevant to your proceedings and informative for the court, as it is to be used as evidence in your matter.

There are reasons as to why a court may decide to exclude your affidavit. It may be that an affidavit is:

  • Too long in length
  • Contain unneeded information
  • Have little or no relevance
  • Be argumentative or inflammatory
  • Provides the opinion of an individual who is unqualified to give it

The Armstrong Legal team can assist you with your affidavit to ensure all relevant information is submitted and the correct issues are addressed.

Affidavits should be:

  • Typed up and not hand written
  • Seperated into numbered paragraphs
  • Underpin the orders that you have asked the Court to make.

Once your affidavit has been gotten ready, it needs to be signed at the bottom of every page before an authorised person, these incldes lawyers or Justices of the Peace, in order to swear or affirm that what is contained in your affidavit is true and correct.
