MC-031 Declaration forms must be attached to another form or court paper before they become valid in court. There is no limited list of forms or statements which may be accompanied by this form. The MC-031 is a standard form for various judicial declarations. Therefore, its use and submission depend on the individual case.

There is no particular deadline for the submission of the document to the court. The declaration's application depends on the need, and it becomes a part of the case as soon as it is considered by the judge. This court form declaration must be submitted directly to the court in which the proceedings of a particular case are held.


  • Organize your ideas before you complete the document and do not add anything unrelated to the case. Describe specific things and give details about when and where incidents took place.
  • You may add statements from those who have directly witnessed the events to quote for your declarations in order to explain what they saw or heard. You may ask friends, neighbors, relatives, doctors, and others to provide specific information.
  • In creating your declaration, do not forget that the judge gives more weight to a professional or neutral individual than someone who supports only one side of the case.
  • Keep your declaration as an unemotional summary of the facts relevant to the case.
  • For the declaration field, you may begin by listing and summarizing any requested orders. Following this, list and explain each issue that has led you to request the order. Your explanation may include a brief background and description of the situation, an explanation of each specific problem, your proposed solution for each problem, and your reasons for proposing it.
  • If you wish to attach written proofs or records, you may do so. Provide bills, medical records, police records, insurance records, financial statements, and other papers you would like the court to see.
  • In your declaration, notate your declaration with what you are attaching as an exhibit. For example, "See Exhibit A", "See Exhibit B", etc.
  • You may use this form as a template when you prepare a Request for Order (FL-300).
  • One of the forms linked with the MC-030 Declaration form is the MC 031 form. Any applicant that passes through a lawsuit in California uses MC 031 form as a standard declaration form. This is used when the original MC-030 form is out of space for writing. When submitting the MC-031, it must have the attached declaration form MC 031.
  • Take note that this declaration form is different from your affidavit.
  • If you are getting ready for trial, your witnesses will usually appear in person and may not require you to use the MC-030 Declaration form since judges usually do not admit declarations as evidence at a trial. Check your local court rules on this.
  • If you need a declaration for a particular motion, you may need a special form used just for that motion. Verify the special declaration forms needed for a specific motion.
