2 Comments Family & de facto law, financial agreements, consent orders
Depends on the Court. Often there are approved forms. Check the Court's website and search for an affidavit form. Download it and have each witness complete it. Each paragraph that each witness completes has to be in admissible form or that part of the affidavit may not become part of the evidence in the case.
I had to include further affidavits pertaining to my FV in my FL Response.
It was a matter of downloading the approved form of the family law website. Make sure you mark it as an Annexure & refer to it in your affidavit.
Ensure also that you remove emotion, assumptions, inferences or the like. State clearly what happened.
ie rather than stating "I was trapped", use "I had my back to the walk & his face was 10 cms from mine. He yelled at me, shaking his fist in front of my face". The second in factual and paints a picture.
Hope this helps.
I note your other post. Info I had been given was not to include anything you didn't experience first hand. Also, a professional relationship is different from a domestic relationship. You are not proving the type the other person is (that is slighting another character & at least in Family Court its not what you want to do), you need to focus on your relationship with that person & what they did to you & made you feel. However, in a non family law court it may be different. I was also advised, short and sweet so not to piss off the judge with reading too much.
Hope this helps again
