Since the witness I have called in my court case is unable to make it to court, can she write down her testimony and have it admissible under penalty of perjury in California?
I am going to court but one of my witnesses can't make it to court to testify on my behalf. I want the testimony of my witness to be heard and be made part of the court record.
Can this witness write down her testimony and sign it declaring what she is saying is the truth and that she swears under oath that what she is writing and attesting to is true? Is there such a form? What verbiage do I use and does it need to be witnessed or notarized? And will this be equally as good as the witness appearing before the judge, since I can't get this witness to come to court.
