Like an affidavit, a statutory declaration is a statement of facts made in writing. The person making the written declaration must do so before a commissioner of oaths, such as a notary public or a lawyer, stating that they believe that everything contained in the declaration is true. The effect of this is the same as swearing in court that everything you say as a witness is true.
There are a variety of reasons a person may require a statutory declaration.
