Tips for Making a Sworn Statement
Only Include Information You Know To Be True
Do not include false information. If the facts contained in the Affidavit are found to be false, you could face prosecution for perjury and imprisonment. Use only first-hand information that you can personally verify.
You Can Attach Supporting Documents or Photographs
Be sure to label attached supporting documents or photographs as “Exhibits,” either numbered or lettered. For example, “Exhibit 1” or “Exhibit A”.
Sign the Affidavit in Front of a Notary Public
An Affidavit is always signed in the presence of a notary public or court clerk, during which you will swear that the information contained is true to the best of your knowledge.
