Adoption Affidavits

Any application must be accompanied by an affidavit setting out the relevant facts. Officers of the Family Court cannot give you legal advice concerning the content of an affidavit. It is recommended that you seek legal advice before completing the affidavit. You may obtain advice from a private lawyer, Legal Aid WA or from a community legal centre.

  1. The affidavit must be typed.
  2. The affidavit must be divided into numbered paragraphs.
  3. If there is insufficient space on the printed form then the affidavit should be typed on blank A4 paper. Every page should be numbered and signed at the bottom by both the party swearing the affidavit and the person who witnesses the affidavit.
  4. Any material referred to in the affidavit as an Annexure (“A”, “B”, “C”) etc must be attached to the back of the affidavit and marked with an annexure note (see below) which must be signed on the same date by the same person who witnesses the affidavit.
