Affidavit proof of signature (non-divorce)

This form is used when proof of signature is required to confirm service in a family law proceedings (other than divorce).

The signed Acknowledgement of service must be attached to this form.

By signing the Affidavit proof of signature, the deponent confirms that they recognise the signature on the Acknowledgement of service because they have seen the person who signed the Acknowledgement of service sign that way on other occasions.

Filing the documents with the Court

The Affidavit proof of signature should be electronically filed on the Commonwealth Courts Portal (see How do I eFile for a step by step guide). If for some reason you cannot file online, you can file at the Court registry where the matter is being heard.

TIP: If you are not registered for the Commonwealth Courts Portal or are registered but do not have access to your file electronically, we can provide your client details or assistance. Please complete the enquiry form for divorce or other family law.

In the form, you need to select:

> I am making an enquiry about myself
> Commonwealth Courts Portal support and registration
> then either:

  • I need to register for the Commonwealth Courts Portal, or
  • I am registered for the Commonwealth Courts Portal but can’t see my file

Please ensure you provide all the requested information. You should also provide your phone number in case we need to contact you.

At Step 3 please provide your file number, if known.
