At Hubbard Pegman & Whitney LLP, based in Hammersmith, our team of specialist family solicitors have extensive experience assisting clients with their family matters.
Our Solicitor based in Hammersmith, Thanuja Oppilamany, explains the use of statutory declaration.
A statutory declaration is a document in which the declarant confirms that the declaration is true and to his/her best knowledge.
It has to be signed in the presence of a solicitor, commissioner for oaths or notary public.
Statutory declarations tend to be used when there is no other evidence available to prove a legal point.
Statutory declarations can be used to prove:

Our Family lawyers can assist you in drafting a statutory declaration and understanding the consequences of signing such a document.
