AFFIDAVIT/STATUTORY DECLARATION – YES OR NO

For your information
Recently this document has been presented to several Justices.
The document is designed to be used where one party to a Divorce cannot serve the documents to the other party in the usual way. Pages 1-6 form an application, and on page 7 is a section that is NOT an affidavit and NOT a statutory declaration. 
The advice of the Royal Federation is to refer the client to a Court Registrar because the document is not correctly formatted as either an affidavit or a statutory declaration.
