declarant
n. A person who makes a verbal statement or signs a written one.

Webster's New World Law Dictionary. . 2000.

declarant
n.
   the person making a statement, usually written and signed by that person, under "penalty of perjury" pursuant to the laws of the state in which the statement, called a declaration, is made. The declaration is more commonly used than the affidavit, which is similar to a declaration but requires taking an oath to swear to the truth attested to (certified in writing) by a notary public. In theory, a declarant who knowingly does not tell the truth would be subject to the criminal charge of perjury. Such violations are seldom pursued.
   See also: affiant, affidavit, declaration
