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
