Help with Statutory Declarations

Hi All

I'm applying for De facto in April time. All is good and confident in the application process. However I just have one problem...statutory declarations from friends and family.

Obviously me being from the UK and my boyfriend from Malaysia we will need to get statutory declarations from the UK, Malaysia and I need one from Singapore as we have friends that just moved there.
I've been advised to use form 888 for my Australian friends, but for the ones outside Australia they have to use ones which are valid in their own country. I'm trying to seek them out myself to save them the trouble but it is proving difficult as I don't really know which form to look for or it is exists.
Can someone possibily help please?????

thanks in advance.

Hi Hwyl, You can get letters, either typed or hand written from friends and family overseas but they must be signed in front of a witness who has similar standing to someone authorised under Australian law to witness declarations such as a lawyer, police officer or notary public. Also attach a certified copy of Id eg, passport, drivers licence or Id card to their statements. They dont need to be in English however any in another language must be translated and certified, as well as any indentification documents. Goodluck

A search of Justice Departments or for some such department like that may turn up what they have similar to statutory declarations and who their government has authorised for witnessing statements and/or certifying copies for it can often be quite different to the situation in Australia.

I take it your Malaysian boyfriend has Australian PR or Citizenship.
