About this document
By definition, a statutory declaration tells a unique story. There can thus be no template which provides a precise story applicable to your own situation. We have therefore provided as one document, three different example declarations.
From the example text given, you will have some idea how to frame your own story.
In particular, examples and advice are given on the opening and closing words.
The three examples given relate to:
- The validity of a document in a litigation matter;
- The position of a disputed boundary in a garden;
- Lost title deeds.
Note: lawyers often refer loosely to “an oath” or “swearing”. Oaths are occasionally required, but more often than not, they mean a “declaration” which is “declared” not “sworn”.

"I used Netlawman to pre-work some contracts for my lawyer. He came back stating that the forms were 'excellent' and saved me several billable hours."Chris T.
"I appreciate your patience. I have to say though it took me a while (I had almost given up) to come across your internet site, but I was quite impressed with the manoverabilty of the site itself and the services it offers. Normally I am very cautious about internet services and am pleasantly impressed by you professional response. Without doubt I will definitely be recommending yourselves to others."Razwana
