Q. I want to get an affirmation outside the United States. What is the correct form and code section?

Answer

"A recent amendment to CPLR 2106 broadens the use of unsworn affirmations (instead of affidavits) beyond attorneys, physicians, osteopaths or dentists. Chapter 380 of the Laws of 2014 allows New York courts to consider unsworn affirmations by any person physically outside the United States or its possessions​."
