Today I asked my solicitor if he could edit and finalise my affidavit. He told me up front that it usually takes him twice as long to update and clean up people's affidavits, as opposed to him writing one from scratch. I then asked him if he could skim through mine and let me know if I'm on the right track, and he said it's better than most. He seemed surprised.

He is a barrister, and said he doesn't use technology or computers, so I assume he just gets his assistant to type stuff for him.

Given that I've already put in so much effort into writing my affidavit, Should I pass it on to him to clean up and finalise, or should I get him to start from scratch?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
