If you are planning to get married in another country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you’ll be asked to provide a document called a Single Status Affidavit.
Some countries may also refer to this document as:
No Record of Marriage
Certificate of Freedom to Marry
Certificate of No Impediment for Marriage
Certificate of No Record – Marriage
Many foreign countries require a document for proof of No Record of Marriage before you are allowed to get married in their country. If you are currently in the United States, you need to make a request at the local County Clerk’s office. If your County Clerk is unable to assist you, please Contact Us.
Check with the proper authorities (Foreign Country) regarding what type of documentation will be required from you. Please be sure to clearly specify to the County Clerk that you need a verification of no Record of Marriage Letter. Also, many countries for you to have additional documents authenticated. For example: Birth Certificates, Divorce Decree, etc… Be sure you obtain a list of all documents requested by the foreign country in order to avoid any delays and additional fees.
