How can you prove that, you are the same person, as the same person mentioned in the document? You just need to draw a Name Affidavit to prove that, you are the same named person, as shown in the document or for any other purposes. But, it is also necessary to understand, what is Affidavit and what is its importance?
An Affidavit is a written declaration, where the declarant (affiant or deponent) certifies that, the facts of the particular subject, recorded in the form are true to his knowledge. The document has to be witnessed and signed by Commissioner of Oaths, a lawyer or Justice of the Peace. These proceedings are essential because, the signed form is used in legal proceedings.
In Wikipedia, this document is defined as "a formal sworn statement of fact, signed by the declarant (who is also called the affiant or deponent) and witnessed (as to the veracity of the declarant’s signature) by a taker of oaths, such as a notary public."
There are important points that, has to be remembered while, preparing the formal sworn document and they include:
The sworn form is written in the first person, by the person making the declaration. It is better that, the declarations are recorded in numbered paragraph, though there are no rules that, they should be paragraphed.
Similarly, through name affidavit form a person can declare under oath that, he is the same person as the person recorded in a document. Such Affidavit also determines that he is same person as another name.
