An affidavit might be used to present evidence from a witness who is unable to physically testify in court.

Affidavits are also used as declarations on different types of legal documents.

A false statement made on an affidavit can lead to a prosecution for perjury, an offence of wilfully telling an untruth in a court after having taken an oath.
