    Hi @Toqual
    A quick Google of each term should guide you in the right direction.
    In summary:
    • Both are written statements.
    • A statutory declaration is used by a person to declare a statement to be true.
    • In contrast, an affidavit is used by a person in a legal proceeding to set out their evidence.
    Hope this helps.
