Instructions for Your General Affidavit

An affidavit is a written sworn statement by the person making it (called the "Affiant") as to some special knowledge that he or she possesses. A general affidavit is used when the circumstances do not call for the use of a specific form like an affidavit of domicile. An affidavit is commonly used in circumstances where an Affiant cannot or is unavailable to provide testimony in person. It is important to note that an affidavit must be made voluntarily and should not be influenced by anyone other than the Affiant. An affidavit carries the same weight as court testimony and must be sworn to be truthful before a notary.

Completing Your Document

To complete the affidavit, enter the current full legal name of the Affiant as well as his or her respective address. The most crucial part of the affidavit is entering in the statements of fact. This is the section containing the information that the Affiant is swearing is truthful to the best of his or her knowledge. The information should be written in short simple sentences referring to the Affiant as "I." The first two sentences should be used to describe the Affiant in terms of name, age, and address. Next, the Affiant should make sure to include the date and time of the events that are being described.

Executing Your Document

The final step is to sign the document, which is normally done in the presence of a notary public. The notary public will conduct an oath in which the Affiant will declare that all the information contained within the affidavit is correct and true to the best of the Affiant's knowledge.
