State the facts. Do not include your feelings or opinions. Instead of writing that someone was angry, describe what the person was doing that made you feel he was angry, such as noting that the person was throwing items, breaking things and screaming.

An affidavit is a statement made under oath, claiming that a fact – or set of facts – is true to the best of the “affiant’s” knowledge. This sworn statement of facts is provided to the Courts or other government agencies to aid in proceedings like divorces, custody battles, and division of estate matters. Affidavits are usually sworn to before a Notary Public or before another officer that has authority to administer oath.
