Unsworn Foreign Declarations Act


This committee has drafted an act that would permit, in state court proceedings, unsworn declarations under penalty of perjury to be executed by witnesses located outside the United States in lieu of affidavits, verifications, or other sworn court filings. Obtaining an affidavit abroad can be a costly and time-consuming process. A uniform state law on this subject would be extremely useful in transnational litigation.
