Affidavits need photograph-identifier statement

The Law Society Litigation Committee has asked practitioners to note a requirement in sworn affidavits.

The jurat of any affidavit sworn should contain wording that specifically states that the document the solicitor relied upon to identify the deponent contained a photograph of the deponent.


Practitioners should note that the Central Office may refuse to file affidavits that do not comply with this requirement.

The Courts Service website has updated its precedent affidavit accordingly.
