Many do not know the format of a Statutory Declaration (SD), and always ask around for a specimen. We have received many enquiries on what is an SD and how to prepare one.
A statutory declaration must be in the form set out in the First Schedule of the Oaths and Declarations Act. It is usually used in real life and statutory declarations are often used to fulfill some legal requirements or obligations where other evidence is not available. Making a false statutory declaration is a criminal offence under Singapore law.
To assist users of our website at LAW.com.sg, we offer this free online service, where users can input their declarations/facts into our Statutory Declaration Automation Form and submit it to generate a sample SD in word format, which will be emailed to them for them to edit and use accordingly.
