What is a statutory declaration?
A statutory declaration is a formal statement declaring something to be true to the best of the knowledge of the person making the statement.
Statutory declarations are written documents that must be signed by both the declarant and the person witnessing the process. Witnesses must be either a legal professional, notary public or commissioner for oaths.
To be valid, a statutory declaration needs to be true, accurate and impartial, and to qualify as impartial, it must be certified by a solicitor independent of the one acting for you.
A few common reasons that you may be required to provide a third party with a statutory declaration include:
- To confirm you are free to marry.
- To confirm identity, nationality or marital status when documentation is not available.
- To transfer an asset to an executor of a will.
- To declare goods for import or export.
- To change your name.
- To confirm a document is an exact copy of an original one.
- To declare solvency.
- For a patent application.
