A written statement of facts you make under oath or affirmation. Often, courts use this type of document as evidence in legal proceedings.
To sign an Affidavit under oath or affirmation, a commissioner for oaths, notary public, or lawyer must witness and sign it with you, which means you swear its listed facts are true. If a court determines that you have not been truthful in your Affidavit, it can be a form of perjury, and you can be held responsible for making a false statement.
