What is mean by Affidavit

Affidavit is a statement sworn before a person having authority to administer an oath. To make affidavit is to testify upon oath. A written or printed statement made voluntarily, and verified by oath, for the purpose of being used in a court of justice as evidence or facts. The statements of facts in an affidavit should be plain and unequivocal; the best evidence should, as a rule, be adduced but ( on interlocutory applications, at least when they do not determine any right) matters of hearsay, belief, or information are not excluded. Affidavit includes affirmation and declaration in the case of persons by law allowed to affirm or declare instead of swearing.
