When to use Affidavit of Identity
An individual’s unique identity is a powerful and valuable asset. This is one of the primary reasons why identity theft is so deeply frustrating. There are times when, due to identity theft, immigration status, loss of critically important documents, name changes and a host of other complicating factors that it can be difficult for an individual to prove his or her identity. Thankfully, providing a business, court or organization requesting proof of identity with a sworn statement can help individuals struggling to prove that they are who they say they are achieve that critically important goal.
If you need to verify your identity or signature, you may use this affidavit form in order to do so. An affidavit of identity is a sworn statement. This means that it is completed under oath and notarized in order to serve as a legal document. As a result, you must be accurate when filling out this form and should fill it out completely in order to better ensure that it will serve its intended purpose and not result in any negative consequences for you. Once the form is complete, you will need to seek the services of a notary public in order to have the document formally notarized. If you are unsure of how to contact a notary, know that most banks and mailing services have individuals authorized as notary publics on staff. As soon as your accurate sworn statement is notarized, you should be able to use it to verify your signature and/or identity.
