Property Settlement - Affidavits

The most frequent way of furnishing facts to a court is by way of affidavit. Affidavits are a straightforward way to provide evidence to the court. Affidavits are sworn statements as to facts and it is important that your affidavit is correct, relevant to your proceedings and informative, as it will be utilised as evidence in your matter.


Affidavits need to by typed and not hand written. An affidavit should be in numbered seperate paragraphs that provide support for the orders that you have asked the court to make in your proceedings.

  • Of an unreasonably long length
  • Unnecessary with regard to the proceedings
  • Of little or no relevance
  • Argumentative
  • The opinion of a person who is not qualified to give one is included

The final step to complete an affidavit is to sign the bottom of each page in front of an authorised person, a lawyer or Justice of the Peace is an authorised person. This is done in order to swear or affirm that the information in your affidavit is true and correct.
