A: A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. In general nationwide, the meaning is pretty much what you'd expect it to be - offering truthful statements while speaking or being questioned under oath, usually in a courtroom setting.

But that's only a generality. A Georgia attorney could advise with more specificity in terms of civil procedure, criminal procedure, rules of evidence, etc., depending on the setting (Arbitration & Crim Law are both included as headings). If this is anything of importance, and your mentioning court papers suggests that it could be, your attorney (or a Georgia attorney you might consult with) would probably advise you not to make further posts on public forums involving any upcoming testimony. Good luck
