Statutory Declaration of Common-Law Union (IMM 5409) Requirements

Before you sign and swear the IMM5409 declaration, we ensure  you have read and fully understood the IMM5409 document. You then swear the statements in the document are true. The legal requirements for statutory declarations are as follows:

  1. You must be physically present with the Commissioner of Oaths when signing.
  2. You must indicate that you have read and understood the  document.
  3. You make the declaration conscientiously believing it to be true and knowing that it is of the same legal force and effect as if made under oath.
  4. The Commissioner of Oaths must check your government issued photo ID. 

After all this, the two partners can sign the Statutory Declaration of Common-Law, and we apply our stamp and seal to your document.
