Declaration:

A declaration is a written statement submitted to a court in which the writer swears "under penalty of perjury" that the contents are true, meaning that the writer acknowledges that if he or she is lying, he may be prosecuted for perjury. Some states allow declarations to be used in the place of affidavits, thus avoiding a trip to the notary.
