Childrens Court Act 1992, Form 25 – Affidavit

Version 3 of Childrens Court Act 1992 (Qld), Form 25 – Affidavit – has been updated to accurately reflect the Childrens Court Rules.

Rule 83(6) requires that each page of an Affidavit is to be numbered. The amended Form 25 version 3 now has page numbering included, in addition to a warning that each page of an Affidavit must be numbered. 

Rule 85(3) provides that a statement (a jurat) must be placed at the end of the body of an affidavit and must state the day and place the person (or persons) is signing the affidavit. The amended Form 25 version 3 now includes both the date and the location to be inserted by the deponent.

The President of the Childrens Court approved the amendments on 27 February 2018, with the Form 25 Affidavit now published on the forms page of the Queensland Courts website.
