A sworn affidavit is a statement which is deemed to be given under oath, describing issues related to a legal issue, court case, or other legal process. The affidavit is taken as testimony, with the legal responsibility upon the person making the statement to provide factual information. False information provided in a sworn affidavit is the equivalent of perjury with similar penalties. A court may accept a sworn affidavit in lieu of personal testimony at its discretion. Sworn affidavits are witnessed by a notary public testifying to the source of the affidavit and the signature of the person providing it.
