A Single Status Affidavit is also often called a Certificate of No Record of Marriage. The Single Status Affidavit can be obtained from the local county clerk or state registrar. This document is issued to attest that a person is not currently married. A Single Status Affidavit may be required for employment purposes. Also, if a person had been married before and now needs to show that he/she is no longer married, he/she can show the divorce status with an apostilled divorce decree obtained from the court.
Global Apostille assists with Apostille for Single Status Affidavits issued by all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
Single Status Affidavit is also referred to as:
- Affidavit of Single Status
- Affidavit of Marriageability
- Certificate of Freedom to Marry
- Certificate of No Impediment for Marriage
- Certificate of No Record – Marriage
- Certificate of No Public Record
- No Record of Marriage
To get your Single Status Affidavit apostilled, you should first contact your local County Clerk’s office and request a document that states you are currently not married (also known as Single Status). Some County Clerk offices refer to this document as a “No Record of Marriage” instead of a “Single Status”. All County Clerk offices have templates of this document, so request to speak to a supervisor if you are not provided with a template. A document issued by the County Clerk’s office does not need to be notarized.
In rare instances, when the County Clerk is unable to help you and you are located in the United States, you can prepare a Single Status Affidavit yourself. You can find samples of this document online. In short, a Single Status is your sworn statement confirming that you are not currently married to another person in the United States. This document must be signed and notarized by a notary public before it is mailed to our office. Also, check with the people/country requesting your Single Status if they accept an affidavit directly from you.
We advise that your Single Status Affidavit should be recently issued as many countries require that the Single Status Affidavit was received within 90 days. We recommend checking with the country requesting your document for the specific requirements on your document validity.
In the event you are outside of the United States, the local US Embassy or US Consulate office should be able to assist you with obtaining, signing, and notarizing a Single Status.
If a country requesting your Single Status Affidavit is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, we will obtain an apostille on your Singe Status. For countries – non-members of the Hague Apostille your documents may need further authentication through the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., and legalization through the Embassy / Consulate office.
Obtaining an apostille can be a complicated process and should not be left to someone that does not understand all of the steps involved. Untrained persons that do not understand all of the tasks involved for certification in each country are more likely to make errors, which will delay the processing of your documents for days, weeks, or even months. Instead of wasting time and money with non-professionals, let Global Apostille handle the apostille for your single status affidavit.
