When to use Affidavit of Residence
There may be any number of reasons why you have been asked to prove your address, school district, county and/or state of residence. An affidavit of residence can help you to accomplish this goal. Oftentimes, when individuals change residences, become involved in legal disputes or need to enroll their children in a public school district, they are asked to produce proof of their current address. But there is not always an easy way to produce necessary proof. Homeowners may not have access to their paperwork. Those who do not own their own home may not know how to produce proof beyond a utility bill statement or rental agreement, which are not always sufficient or easily accessible. Thankfully, filling out a sworn statement known as an affidavit of residence can help you to provide any proof of address you may need under various circumstances.
Please note that an affidavit of residence is not the same as an affidavit of domicile. An affidavit of residence is used to prove the current address of a living person. An affidavit of domicile is generally used by the executor of an estate when attempting to cash in certain investments that belonged to an individual who is now deceased.
Whenever you need to prove your address, you may be able to use an affidavit of residence in order to do so. Once you fill out the necessary information accurately and completely, you will need to ensure that it is properly notarized before your statement can be used for a legal purpose. This form provides an efficient, straightforward way to prove your current residence.
