What is an Affidavit?

An affidavit is a written statement that is used specifically as evidence in court. An affidavit is a verified statement:

  • The statement is verified to have been made voluntary.

  • The statement is verified to have been made by the individual who signed the document.

This verification can be done by anyone who is authorized by the legal system, such as a notary public.
