An affidavit is a sworn written statement of facts, made under oath, and under penalty of perjury, that the statements are true to the best of his or her knowledge. The person making the oath signs the affidavit form in front of a witness, most commonly a notary public, who verifies the identity of the person signing (the “signatory”). An affidavit is a voluntary action and is admissible as evidence in court hearings.
