The person who makes and subscribes his signature to an affidavit.
An affidavit is a signed statement, duly sworn to, by the maker thereof, before a notary public or other officer authorized to administer oaths. The venue, or county wherein the affidavit was sworn to should be accurately stated. But it is of far more importance that the affiant, the person making the affidavit, have personally appeared before the notary and have made oath to the statements contained in the affidavit.
A solemn declaration made by a person who conscientiously declines taking an oath. It is equivalent to an oath and is just as binding. If a person has religious or conscientious scruples against taking an oath, the notary public should have the person affirm.
Department of State authentication attached to a notarized and county-certified document for possible international use.
To witness an execution of a written instrument, at the request of the person who makes it, and subscribe the same as witness.
