Usage: Affidavit is the wider term. It denotes any authorized
ex parte written statement of a person, sworn to or
affirmed before some competent magistrate. It is made
without cross-examination, and requires no notice to
an opposing party. It is generally signed by the party
making it, and may be drawn up by himself or any other
person. A deposition is the written testimony of a
witness, taken down in due form of law, and sworn to
or affirmed by the deponent. It must be taken before
some authorized magistrate, and upon a prescribed or
reasonable notice to the opposing party, that may
attend and cross-examine. It is generally written down
from the mouth of the witness by the magistrate, or
some person for him, and in his presence.
