POWER OF ATTORNEY
A power of attorney is a written authorisation to represent or act on another’s behalf in private affairs, business, or some other legal matter. The person authorising the other to act is the principal, grantor, or donor (of the power). The one authorised to act is the agent or attorney or, in some common law jurisdictions, the attorney-in-fact. A Lasting Power of Attorney lets you appoint someone to make decisions on your behalf. It is normally used when someone is unable to make their own decisions.

CERTIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS
When you apply for something like a bank account or mortgage or you sponsor someone to visit you or join you in the UK, you may be asked to provide documents that are certified as true copies of the original.
A statutory declaration is a legal document defined under the law of certain Commonwealth nations. It is similar to a statement made under oath, however, it is not sworn. Statutory declarations are commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement or regulation when no other evidence is available. They are thus similar to affidavits (which are made on oath).
- Declarations of identity, nationality, marital status, etc, when documentary evidence is unavailable
- Declaring the intention to change one’s name
- Affirming the provenance and nature of goods for export or import
- Statements of originality for patent applications

An affidavit is a written sworn statement of fact voluntarily made by an affiant or deponent under an oath or affirmation administered by a person authorised to do so by law. Such statement is witnessed as to the authenticity of the affiant’s or deponent’s signature by a taker of oaths, such as a notary public or Commissioner for Oaths.
