    Lawyers agree

    Answered . That constitutes hearsay and is more than likely not going to be admissible even if its a notarized affidavit.

    Answered . This is a related question to one I answered moments ago.

    In a judgment relief motion I believe the only affiant can be a licensed attorney. It is likley a substantive part of the request to set aside a judgment and is needed to invest the court with continued jurisdication.

    YOU NEED A LAWYER on this .... it is TOO COMPLEX to try alone.
