2. What is a statutory declaration?

A statutory declaration is a written statement declared to be true in the presence of an authorised witness. You must use the form of statutory declaration that complies with the requirements of the Statutory Declarations Act 1959 and the Statutory Declarations Regulations 1993.

Electronic copies of the forms which must be used, and information about using statutory declarations, can be found on the Attorney General's website, or printed copies can be obtained from your local DVA office.
