What are oaths, affidavits, affirmations, and statutory declarations?

An oath is where someone makes a solemn promise as to the truth of a statement or information provided by the oath maker.

Affirmations are made by persons who have a just reason to object to taking oaths, or their religion does not recognise oaths as a binding force. It has the same legal effect as an oath.

Statutory declarations make statements in a prescribed form by statute that declares something is true. These statements are not sworn.

Affidavits are written sworn statements of fact made by someone who signs an affidavit. It is usually used in court proceedings as evidence.
