What is life of an affidavit
Anaita Vas 07 January 2022
A notarized document like an affidavit is valid for its contents up to infinity. The time, location, and date on which the same was executed should be the main consideration or that the contents of the affidavit are denied by new/other evidence making the previous affidavit null and void.
The day of the creation of the affidavit and its authentication – notarization, etc. should be done as far as possible on the same day or it will become an avoidable document in the hands of the authority/court to which it is presented/submitted.
There are many different types of affidavits, and they vary considerably according to their intended purpose. For instance, Affidavit of domicile, marriage, change of name, heirship, and many more. Therefore, these affidavits will not expire because there is no expiry date for the affidavits that has signature properly and published with accurate evidence. There is no period of validity to an affidavit.
