Do You Need To Prepare A Statutory Declaration?

February 21, 2017 | Published by

A statutory declaration is a statement of facts, notarized by a notary public to affirm that the contents are true. Notarizations are required for all statutory declarations, from a Statutory Declaration of Common-law Union, to an Unregistered Vehicles and Missing Signatures Declaration.

In many cases, a declaration is required to be notarized by a lawyer or notary public for the government (or perhaps your workplace) to consider your document to be valid.

If you need a notary public to notarize a statutory declaration, visit our notary office in downtown Vancouver. Not only are we located at a convenient location, but we accommodate same-day appointments and even mobile notary services.

What this means is that you don’t have to make large adjustments to your schedule, going out of your way to have a document notarized. We will accommodate after-hours appointments, weekend appointments, or even go out of our way to visit you at your location to have your document notarized.

When Do You Need a Statutory Declaration?

Statutory declarations are notarized for a variety of scenarios. Some examples of statutory declarations include the following documents:

  • Declaration for Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Declaration of Common-Law Union
  • Declaration of Legal Marriage
  • Declaration of Lost License
  • Declaration of Finances
  • Declaration of Asset Ownership
  • Declaration of Lost Indian Passport
  • Declaration of Change of Appearance

As you can see, declarations can be used for everything from proving that you are are in a marital relationship with your partner, to declaring that you own an asset. Declarations are available for virtually any scenario, if you wish to acquire physical proof that something is true.

It is worth mentioning that if you plan to use a notarized document in court, you will need to swear an affidavit instead of a statutory declaration. Contact our notary public at Morris Notary if you require any clarification or additional information.
