What is an affidavit?  An affidavit is a statement of a person made under oath attesting that the contents of the statement are, to the best of the signing party's knowledge, true.

Who must sign an affidavit form?  The party making the statement must of course sign the statement under oath.  It is also signed by a notary or some other judicial officer that can administer oaths, to the effect that the person signing the affidavit was under oath when doing so.

Tips for Preparing Oregon Affidavit Forms

  1. Stick to the main strategy. Affiants require specific details but often turn out contradicting the applicant’s sworn statement. It is not hard to find yourself spending more hours preparing Oregon Affidavit Forms and receiving a lower quality record. To prevent this scenario, adhere to the main idea behind your affidavit form.
  2. Write in the first person. You're responsible for the statement of your affidavit letter, so write only in the first person and use an active voice. Show your complete name and the full names of everybody included. Note that any confusion is a setback you should get rid of.
  3. Be consistent while planning Oregon Affidavit Forms. Write down a plan to list all occasions chronologically. If you can remember the date and time of such events, place them in too. Reread your note and ensure that things are clear.
  4. List the facts you are certain about. Affidavits should only include appropriate information. Don't rush to draw in any conclusions. Alternatively, illustrate the situation as you noticed it, list what you heard, and confirm the facts with proof, when possible.
  5. Sign and notarize it. It's a legal document, so to enforce your sworn statement, you need to sign it. Notarization is required too. Go to a notary office to meet them in person, ask them to look at the form and verify your identity. Then, sign papers and notarize them at the same time.
