The Statutory Declarations Act 1835 is the law that governs the process for making a statutory declaration.

Can I write my own statutory declaration?

You can write your own declaration or you may want to pay a Solicitor to create your declaration for you, to make sure it meets The Statutory Declarations Act 1835
