You or someone with a typewriter can prepare an affidavit. Affidavit is just a legal term for a sworn statement. Put AFFIDAVIT at the top center of the a blank piece of typing paper, Down a few lines add your statement, put lines for the signatures of the persons this pertains to, along with a line for the notary public, at the bottom right hand side, after the words for your statement. UNDER THE LINES TYPE THE NAMES of the signers and also notary public underneath the line for the notary's signature. Get it notarized and you just saved yourself some money, don't spend it all in one place. (smile) If this is still a little confusing, go to your local library and request to see a sample affidavit and follow the same format, just put your information. Ms-fix-it
If I can't get the person to go with me to get the affidavit notarized, will it still work if I have witnesses with me to sign at that time that the person did fill out the affidavit?
An affidavit is a document that contains a written statement that is used in court proceedings as evidence. The person making such an affidavit has to confirm by way of promising that the information contained is accurate. An affidavit must be prepared before a judge, policeman or other authorized person. In the United Kingdom an affidavit has to be prepared in the presence of a solicitor or alternately in a local County Court. The normal fees that any solicitor would charge works out to around ₤5.00 for the affidavit itself and an additional ₤2.00 for all documents that are attached to the original. County Courts do not charge anything for affidavits that are sworn there. High Courts however cannot have Affidavits sworn in County Courts brought before them in cases being heard there.
