Apostille a Single Status Affidavit

Are you planning to get married in another country?  You may be asked to provide an apostille on a Single Status Affidavit.  A single status affidavit is a document issued by the County Clerk that states that you are currently not married.  There are 58 County Clerks in California but unfortunately, not all of them will issue a single status affidavit.

Some countries may also refer to this document as:

Single Status Affidavit
Certificate of Freedom to Marry
Certificate of No Impediment for Marriage
Certificate of No Record – Marriage

An alternative to obtaining one from the County Clerk is to write out a statement and have it notarized.  The notary can either stamp the Jurat statement to the document or attach the wording on a separate page. In addition to a single status affidavit, you will also be asked to provide an apostille on your birth certificate and divorce decree (if you were previously married).

Nonetheless, all documents we receive are verified prior to being hand-delivered to the Secretary of State’s office. If we encounter any problems, we will contact you ASAP and provide you step-by-step directions on how to fix the problem.

Apostilles can be complicated. Don’t leave this process to untrained employees or non-professionals who do not fully understand the Apostille process and the unique requirements of certain countries. Your paperwork could be rejected costing you time and money. Don’t let this happen to you!
