An affidavit is a sworn written statement that can be used in a number of important ways. It can be used in connection with filing or responding to a motion in court. It can also be used to give assurances to other parties in non-court transactions (for example, promising a buyer that you are the owner of a particular piece of property). It may be required by creditors on loan documents. A well-drafted affidavit can provide clarity to a court or certainty to a business transaction. Although no document can ensure litigation success or insulate you from later lawsuits or claims, a clear affidavit can strengthen your case and your defenses. This packet is designed to help you create a document that will work for you and your business, but it too is just a starting point. Consider how your document will be used and how you can alter it to suit your needs.
