Hi,
I would say yes they do need to be witnessed by a notary public/solicitor.
Sophia who contributes to this ng has a good example of a stat dec/sworn statement...try emailing her...or private message!

I also think Im right in saying that if you have the stat dec drawn up at one solicitors office they can't let you swear it there..you have to take it alse where to be sworn.

We're doing a sworn statement because my hubby is self employed and thats what we have to do ...for him to say this is what he does ..with these tools..for so long etc...we have typed out the statement ourselves and will swear it tomorrow...hopefully...

You can either use the official Statutory declaration form (www.immi.gov.au/allforms/statdec.htm) or just use a sheet of paper. I used the latter and got 2 declarations written which then had to be signed and dated by the declarant in the presence of a solicitor who in turn witnessed the document.

Hiya, my fiancee and I have just went through getting everything sent to the Embassy (about a month ago ) and now we are just waiting for any news. Chris lives in Adelaide and he picked up the stat decs at the post office. When they are filled out take them to a JP (justice of the peace) to sign them. That is the Oz equivalent to the American notary. Hope this helps and if you need any help or advice just leave me a message.
