Throughout my years in this forum, I found that most people have trouble writing an affidavit.

Even lawyers make mistakes in drafting affidavits.

Here I will try to improve your affidavit writing skills.

The Golden Rules of Affidavit writing

1.  Plan your strategy before writing
2.  Do not write arguments
3.  Use first person narrative
4.  Give each issue it's own paragraph and number them
5.  Write each paragraph in a way to make it easy to reply to it
6.  State your occupation
7.  Use exhibits whenever possible
8.  Reply all important points if possible

Golden Rule 8.  Reply all important points if possible

If your affidavit is written in reply to another affidavit, please make sure you specifically reply to each and every statement and allegation that you do not agree with. 

By law, any allegation not specifically denied is taken as admitted,
unless the allegation is too stupid, ridiculous, incredulous or unbelievable.

Although it is a crime to lie in an affidavit, a lot of people still tell lies in affidavits in desperate attempts to win their case.

Totally agreed. The bank lawyers are mostly lie-experts in helping others to lie in their affidavits. Hence, making numerous people bankrupt easily.

Thanks William Chan. I bought your book too. Hopefully can have a chance to meet you in person some day.
