Hello affidavits what's an affidavit well an affidavit is a written statement that you make for court typically that is essentially under oath so if you lie in an affidavit you can be prosecuted for perjury most of the time though my personal experience people lie in affidavits all the time and the court gives no about this they don't care that's how it is but if you are a person who is making an affidavit you're in a fiant ah if you're a person that's making an affidavit you should be sticking to the facts that's how you're going to gain the most credibility and how is it that you make a proper affidavit we're going to talk about that right now so typically you're going to see a lot of people creating their own affidavits in family court sadly a lot of the time you're going to see about 60% of cases where at least one person is representing themselves and that is a sad statistic and that is typically in family court we are trying to as a help center for self represented litigants we are trying to give people the information that they need to help them with their case that will you know bring their case from a poor level up to here where it's an exceptional level this is one of those this is one of those lessons you're not going to want to miss it now what is an affidavit already discussed it where is it used already discussed that uh what is it that you should be saying in an affidavit I will get to that um so I'm going to keep this video on point with family law rules only so phase law rules in Ontario although this is going to be applicable to cases outside of Ontario essentially most provinces except for Quebec have you know very similar laws when it comes to family law and I'm going to refer to to Ontario's family law rules but if you're in a different province in Canada then you're going to have to refer to your own rules rule 14 now I say rule 14 because this is the typical uh rule in a proceeding and a family law proceeding that you're going to have to produce an affidavit for a motion a motion is how you get some temporary relief in a case and I mean relief in the sense that you ask the judge for an order and an order is made but it's made on a temporary basis so under Rule 14 you're going to find rules about bringing motions you're also going to find what is acceptable in a motion which is an affidavit an affidavit is typically used on all motions if you go into family court there is probably in my mind one percent of the time where an affidavit is not used in a family law motion but you know that aside there are

What are the best ways to redact a PDF?
Personally if it is highly classified I wouldn't use any form of electronic reactions on it's own.I would print off the pdf document, then proceed to use a permanent black marker to black out the confidential parts of the document. Then I would further tipex/whiteout the parts i marked with the black marker, then black parker ontop of the tipex/whiteout. This would be done on both sides of the page so you cannot pull it up to the light and see the words. After all this is done, I would scan the page transformation it back into a pdf then use Adobe PDF “redact" feature to do a final reaction on the classified document.This may be overkill, but this ensures pretty much no one on gods green earth other then those privy to such information can/will know what is exactly enclosed in said document.Regards,Ash

How can I remove the “Unmarked set by user” note that appears on each page of a PDF after I redact it using Adobe Acrobat?
During redacting, Acrobat allows you to set the look and feel of the note that will appear in reacted areas once done. While marking areas to redact, you can click Properties in the context menu and set and format the text to show in every individual redacted block:The settings are “sticky” and will stay for every new redaction until you change them. That’s what might have happened to you since you or some other user on your account last changed the redaction properties.Now, that’s all good and dandy, but if you already applied the redactions, they become regular objects ingrained in the document, and can no longer be changed like that. But hey, on the flipside, they become searchable and replaceable. Go Edit Find, and replace the original redaction text with whatever you want. It’s going to be tedious though as there’s no Replace All for your own good, and any formatting changes will need to be reapplied individually to every object.
Why does redacting and sanitizing a PDF make the file so much larger?
A PDF is actually a file format that contains data how about to “render” or display the data. The file can contain images as well as text. In most cases when you redact and sanitize a PDF you are creating an image of what would be displayed by the rendering software (generally Adobe PDF Reader). This results in each page being an image of what would be rendered in stead of the text and lotting the software render the page.Images for printing are usually 300dpi or dots per inch meaning that you have a very high density of pixels. Each pixel takes a certain amount of space on your hard drive. A standard web image is only 72dpi, but since most PDFs are for printing they are stored at 300dpi and thus you end up with a pdf file containing an image for every single page in the PDF.
Why are redacted parts of documents revealed when they in a PDF format?
They are not “revealed” unless you did it wrong.Removing sensitive content from PDFs
