Oaths are integral to the effective administration of justice in New South Wales.

Any improper or dishonest conduct relating to oaths is therefore treated very seriously by the criminal justice system.

The Oaths Act 1900 (NSW) prescribes a range of criminal offences for improperly making and administering oaths, affirmations, declarations and affidavits.

Those offences attract harsh penalties, including prison.

If you are charged with an offence under the Oaths Act, it is important to obtain advice and representation from criminal lawyers who are experienced in defending these types of cases.
