Statutory Declarations?

Recommended Posts

Can anybody tell me can you just type up a statutory declaration on normal paper or does it have to be on legal? Does it have to follow a certain format or do you just write the list of things you want to say? Also can it be witnessed by a barrister?

 

Thanks in advance x

Hi Caz, Ours were done on ondinary paper, nothing fancy. Depends on the what your stat dec is for will decide what the wording will be.

 

We had ours done for our defacto relationship, if you need standard wording let me know, i'll dig it out?

Just type it up yourself. If you google stat. declaration you'll find loads of example documents. Don't sign it. You need to declare and sign it in front of your notary public or whoever you are getting to certify your documents.

Good luck.

Hey, if you don't mind me asking, at what point during the skills assessment will you use the stat dec? Just trying to get my head around it. Thanks :biggrin:

Hiya no worries

After you've got AQF III you will have to get recognition from TRA and because Des is self-employed he has to do 1 as a personal statement.

So it's not too bad then? My agent who I've since dumped to go it alone due to the stupid amount of money they were chargin was goin on about headed paper, but most sole traders over here don't have headed paper. I keep procrastinating, we're getting married in 2 weeks and my head keeps wandering from the mountain of paperwork and letters I have to write to get everyone to sign :arghh: While I love my almost husband and he is a fantastic tiler this nonsense is not his thing! But lookin out the window today at the rain has got me moving a bit to get away from here!!

 

Sorry for rambling!! The children don't seem to want to listen!:biggrin:

Wasn't too bad for me but the job descriptions often felt like I was describing them to my 2 year old. You can never have too much detail and plain paper is fine. I'll see if I can PM you one of my stat decs to help.

Hope the wedding goes OK too.........my missus would love to know what the cake is like cos that's what she does !:wink:

Hi Chardy. Did you do "a detailed half page description/overview of business, and the products and services offered by the business" in your stat decs??? Or did you just leave it out? Thats a requirement of the employer statement, but I think I have to be very careful what I claim in a stat dec. Thanks!:biggrin:

you can do a stat dec on ordinary A4 paper, however then documents must be signed by a magistrate or a police officer or school principal & make sure they are all dated with signatures also make photo-copies, once the documents are dated they become a "Legal" document.
