This is a written statement that can be used in a court of law mainly done through an affirmation or an oath. There’s no difference between the evidence that is put forward in material or goods and the evidence that is given forward in terms of an affidavit, both are rendered reliable in the eyes of the court.There are steps that one should follow in writing a proper affidavit that would be held reliable in a court of law.The The first recommendation is to insert a case caption as the document heading which will be seen indicating the place where the court is to be attended, names of defendants and plaintiffs and the case number.This The document should also entail the name ‘AFFIDAVIT’ below the heading of the document. The heading goes as the first agenda and then the second agenda is writing ones personal information which includes the name of the person, the address of the affiant, the job occupation and the marital status if need be. The affidavit starts with the affiant name before everything else who is the person that swears the affidavit. The statement of an affidavit provides the most sensitive part as most of the writings here should be done to precision for it to hold any grounds in a court of law. Facts hold more ground in a case than opinions and theories thus the statement in the affidavit should be full of facts.
Each and every fact should be well put in its paragraph with letters such as ‘I’ signifying that the person who did the affidavit is reliable for the facts.There are cases when more than one fact cannot be separated where in this case the facts are clearly stated in one paragraph. The different facts that are provided by the affidavit should have supportive documents and dates and addresses to verify the truth of the affiant. The affidavit should have a part that shows the person swears that all the statements were written are in fact precise and clear. One should not forget to put a block that shows the signature of the affidavit.You should make sure when signing the document there’s a notary in the present that will also help in legitimizing the statements in being facts and nothing else. The affiant truths on signing the document will be supported by the notary who will have a block on the affidavit to sign.
