In both situations Affidavits and Statutory Declarations, the Best Practice is the same.
- Each Affidavit must be sworn or affirmed separately.
- Each Statutory Declaration must be taken separately.
There are no shortcuts. Justices of the Peace must perform these tasks in a professional manner. I am sure that if an Affidavit or Statutory Declaration was produced in Court and the documents had been sworn, affirmed or declared as part of a batch, they would not be accepted.
