The Affidavit

Many people get nervous when you mention the word affidavit. Maybe because they have connected it to the phrase I have an affidavit for your arrest. An affidavit is merely a form that a person swears that a certain fact is true or that certain facts occurred.

Affidavits are limited as how they can be used. For example they cannot be used in court to substitute for a live witness because a person has the right to confront the eyewitness. However it is a good tool for negotiation outside of court.

An affidavit can be administered by a notary public. Just keep in mind that in an affidavit you are stating under oath that everything you say is true to the best of your knowledge under the penalty of perjury.
