Some of the websites where users can obtain affidavit forms for Texas are txdmv.gov and U.S. Legal Forms.com. Users can also download these documents at TexasLawHelp.org and txcourts.gov.
Affidavits are legal tools that users can utilize to affirm the complete truth of their assertions, according to Rocket Lawyer. Among others, they are alternatively known as sworn oath statements, notarized statements, affidavit letters or general affidavits. Interested parties should use these instruments when they need to make declarations or statements of fact under oath as part of contractual and other legal processes, or when they require others to make similar sworn assertions.
There are many types of affidavits, but some of the more common types are affidavits of birth, which bearers use to verify facts relating to their births in lieu of birth certificates, and affidavits of death, which attest to the death of the named subject, explains Rocket Lawyer. Other prevalent forms of these documents are affidavits of residence, which bearers utilize to affirm their residency status; identify theft affidavits, which attest to the loss of certain identifying documents; and affidavits of financial support, which sponsors use to confirm that they are financially responsible for immigrants coming to the United States.
Other common forms of this instrument include affidavits of small estate, notes Rocket Lawyer. Bearers use them to affirm that the estates in question possess values below specified thresholds, typically $150,000. Small estates generally have less involving probate processes. However, as of January 2016, residents of Kentucky, New Hampshire and Georgia cannot legally use these documents.
