An affidavit is a written statement of facts. It is the most common way of presenting facts to a court. As an affidavit is designed as a simple way to present information to the court, it is essential your affidavit is correct, relevant and informative as it will be used as evidence in your matter.

The court may put aside your affidavit if it is

  • Unreasonably long
  • Unnecessary
  • Irrelevant
  • Argumentative
  • Sets out the opinion of someone who is not qualified 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.

An affidavit should be typed, not hand written and divided up into numbered paragraphs. It should also support the orders that you have asked the Court to make in your application or response.

Once your affidavit is completed, you must be sign the bottom of each page in front of an authorised person, such as a lawyer or Justice of the Peace, to swear or affirm that the information in your affidavit is true.
