What is a statutory declaration?
A statutory declaration is a written, formal statement, confirming that something is true to the best of the knowledge of the person making the declaration.
In order to be valid, a statutory declaration must be signed in the presence of a legal professional like a solicitor, a commissioner of oaths or a notary public. The declaration should be true, accurate and impartial.
Statutory declarations are governed by the Statutory Declarations Act 1835 and must adhere to strict wording.
When may a statutory declaration be required?
A statutory declaration is a legal document that may be requested by a third party when evidence is required and there is no other evidence available.
Some of the most common reasons that our clients seek statutory declarations include:
- To change their name.
- To confirm their personal details (eg. identity, nationality or marital status) when other documentation is not available.
- To transfer an asset to an executor of a will.
- To declare solvency when a company is going into voluntary liquidation.
- To confirm they are free to marry.
- To declare the originality of an item when applying for a patent.
- To declare goods for import or export.
