An affidavit of domicile is a legal document filed in court to establish the legal place of residence of a recently deceased person. The affidavit is usually filed by the executor or personal representative of the deceased person's estate in order to establish residency and help transfer estate assets.
The affidavit of domicile is also usually required by insurance companies and financial institutions prior to releasing assets to an heir or beneficiary. Like all affidavits, this document must also be witnessed by a notary public.
