statutory declaration



Assertion of the knowledge of a circumstance, event, or fact, made in a prescribed manner before a Commissioner of Oaths, Justice Of Peace, or a Notary Public. Although a statutory declaration has the same effect as an affidavit, it is used only in out-of-court (extra judicial) proceedings.
