The “Affidavit for Exemption for Personal Appearance of Accused” is a legal document filed in court requesting the exemption of the accused from appearing physically in court during specified hearings or proceedings. This affidavit serves as a formal declaration, supported by sworn statements, explaining the reasons why the accused seeks exemption from attending court in person.
The grounds for seeking exemption can vary and may include health-related issues, unavoidable commitments, distance or travel constraints, or other substantial reasons that hinder the accused from being physically present in court. The affidavit typically outlines the specific dates or hearings for which the exemption is requested and provides supporting evidence or documentation to substantiate the reasons cited.
Submitting an affidavit for exemption for the personal appearance of the accused allows the court to consider the circumstances and decide whether to grant the exemption. The court evaluates the validity of the reasons provided and determines whether the accused’s absence will impede the proceedings or cause any prejudice to the case. If the court finds the reasons satisfactory and justified, it may grant the exemption, allowing the accused to be excused from physically attending certain court hearings while ensuring that the legal process continues appropriately.
