In Massachusetts, what do I need to do to get signatures admitted into evidence in small claims court? I'm suing my landlord, and instead of trying to get 20 other tenants to come in as witnesses, would like to have them make a signed statement. Must it be notarized? Witnessed?

Thank you!

Defendant has right to cross examine.....

Witnesses are ALWAYS the best. Otherwise, find out what they will say and subpeona them into court. Having someone prepare an affadavit and then notarize each one with signature will be expensive.


And you forgot something about living in the United States of America....

You have a right to face your accuser and ask them questions, which would be impossible if your witnesess are on Paper!

As long as you can get 2,3 or 4 who will show up and who know everything and are personally involved with this, that would be fine then have the others sign staements.
