Do you need an apostille on a Single Status?
Are you planning on getting married in another country? If you are planning to get married in another country, you will need to obtain an apostille on your single status affidavit. A single status affidavit is a document that states you are currently not married to another person in the USA.
The reason why another country would ask for you to obtain this document is to prevent you from being married to more than one person at a time. You can obtain a single status affidavit by contacting the local County Clerk or you can draft your own document and have it notarized (see example below). If you are outside of the USA, the local U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate office will also be able to assist you with the production and notarization of this document.
In the State of California, the local County Clerk can issue a single status affidavit.
Some countries may also refer to a “Single Status Affidavit” as:
No Record of Marriage
Certificate of Freedom to Marry
Certificate of No Impediment for Marriage
Certificate of No Record – Marriage
Affidavit of Single Status
Affidavit of Marriageability
Certificate of No Public Record
Here is an example of a single status affidavit:
