There are various types of affidavits out there. As a former Notary Public, I encountered certain types of affidavits on a regular basis. Here are some of the ones I saw.
Signature Affidavit and AKA Statement
This one shows up in loan packages on a regular basis as signers sometimes have variations in their signature or names.
Occupancy Affidavit and Financial Status
This document typically makes the signer swear that they will move into or reside in a particular property and that they have not incurred any sudden changes to their finances.
An Affidavit where you swear to your name.
An Affidavit where you swear to your identity.
Affidavit of Citizenship
An Affidavit where you swear to be a citizen of the USA or a particular other country.
Affidavit of Support
An Affidavit where you swear you will support a particular person who wishes to enter the United States.
Affidavit of Small Estate
Used when a family members dies without a will and property matters need to be dealt with.
Affidavit of Heirship
When a family member dies, the assets must be allocated to the right individuals.
Affidavit of Residence
This document requires the signer to swear to where they live.
Affidavit of Name Changed
Used if you have changed your name.
Affidavit of Death
I’m tempted to say this document makes you swear that you authentically died, but that doesn’t make any sense. It is used to notify financial, legal or other institutions that a person has died.
Identity theft Affidavit
If a person’s identity has been compromised, this document could be filled out and sent to credit bureaus, etc.
Affidavit of Service
Requires an individual swear to the fact that they delivered documents to another individual
Affidavit of Consent
Requires an individual to swear to the fact that they consent to a particular action or activity, etc.
Affidavit of Domicile
Similar to an affidavit of residence.
