First and foremost, I'd like to start with a disclosure.
I'm not a legal professional or a lawyer. This post was shared strictly for educational and informational purposes.
With that said, let's dive right in!
So you may be asking yourself, what is an Affidavit?
Before we get into what an Affidavit is, it's important to know how the legal system works on a basic level.
Essentially, when you approach a court or are contesting something through the legal system, you need to prove your case.
And, in order to prove your case so that it greatly favours you and not opposing side, you have to provide evidence.
One of the most powerful pieces of documents, in terms of evidence, is the Affidavit.
An Affidavit is a document that is declared as sworn testimony.
This means that the information contained in that document is undisputable truth.
Unless of course, the opposing party files their own affidavit of denial and requesting the evidence to be investigated.
It's important to understand that when either party submit a sworn statement where any lies are discovered, the party is immediately subject to fines and are perjuring themselves.
Which is all the more reason why you have to use this document only if you're confident and know for a fact that the information presented is 100% factual and accurate.
Here's a video explaining this in further detail:
