AFFIDAVITS & DECLARATIONS, PETERBOROUGH
STATUTORY DECLARATIONS & AFFIDAVITS
Statutory declarations and affidavits used in many jurisdictions worldwide. The difference between the two is that affidavits are sworn under oath whereas declaration are not. Both are used to prove the truth of the subject of the document. Statutory declarations are often used in "private" legal matters whereas affidavits are often used in "public" legal matters such as court proceedings. Do you need to find out more?
