Statutory Declarations

A Statutory Declaration is a formal statement made in a prescribed manner affirming that something is true to the best knowledge of the individual making the statement under the Statutory Declaration Act 1835.

It is not administered under oath and therefore is not the same as an affidavit. A Statutory Declaration will however, need to be signed in the presence of a Solicitor, Commissioner for Oaths or Notary


An Affidavit is a written statement made by an individual confirming that the contents of what they are stating in the Affidavit are true.  An Affidavit can be used alongside witness statements to prove the facts and truthfulness of statements made in Court.
