Often required during school and nursery admissions, the First Child Affidavit is a document that is required to be submitted by parents to a school/nursery in which they seek admission for their ward. This is a fairly new process and that is why most young parents are unaware about how to get the said affidavit drafted. Thankfully, we’re here to help you with that.
In the last few years, educational institutions, especially private ones, have started requesting for this particular affidavit for various reasons. One of the reasons is that the ward gains special points and a priority being the first born.
Kindly keep in mind that the First Child Affidavit is required for the FIRST BORN child’s admission and related events alone. It does not apply for second or third born kids.
How To Make First Child Affidavit?
The procedure, like with most affidavits, is fairly straightforward. The document requires one or both parents to act as Deponent(s) and swear that the ward in question is indeed their first born child and that they are drafting it for the purpose of the ward’s admission in a particular educational institution.
You can approach any notary in your locality to get this done. Alternately, you can use our online tool to create one and have it delivered to your doorstep. We guarantee that our legal documents are lawyer-verified and free of error.
What Should Be Included In The Affidavit?
The general rule of thumb is that the affidavit for first born child should include the following details –
Name of Deponent
Age of Deponent
Name of Ward for whose admission the affidavit is being drafted
Nature of Deponent’s relation with the ward
Statement declaring that the ward is indeed the Deponent’s first born
Name of the educational institution in which the ward seeks admission
Sometimes customizations may have to be made if the institution so requests. Should that be the case, LegalDesk will be more than happy to help with making a customized affidavit.
How To Make It Legally Valid And Enforceable?
To make a legally valid First Born Child Affidavit, you need to prepare the draft with all the details mentioned in the sections above. Once your draft is reviewed and ready, print it on Stamp paper of State recommended value. The Deponent must then approach a Notary or any authority with the power to witness an oath and swear the contents of the affidavit before him. Once the Notary attests the document, it can be considered legally valid and enforceable.
The last few steps could get tedious as getting your affidavit printed on Stamp paper and getting a Notary for attestation is time consuming to say the least. We strongly recommend that you use our service to get everything done from the comforts of your home.
