Single Status Affidavit

Some U.S. citizens are planning to get married in abroad. They are frequently asked to submit the Single Status Affidavit to certify that they are free to marry and not already legally married. If the destination country is a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention, the Single Status Affidavit must be apostilled.

Proof that you are not legally married will be necessary in another country to show that you are who you claim to be. Authorities from other international countries will ask for special documentation. One of the involved parties will require a document that contains some private information.

Once the Single Status Affidavit is filled out and notarized, your next step is to have it either apostilled or legalized, depending on the destination country. If the country where you will be married is a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, then your affidavit can be apostilled; for non-members, the affidavit is then legalized by the country’s embassy. Whether you need to apostille or legalize the Single Status Affidavit, notarization is the first step.

We provide secure and reliable services for getting a single status affidavit apostille. Let us complete the procedure for you after you have the Single Status Affidavit that has been notarized and any other paperwork needed by the country where you will get married.

Single Status Affidavit Apostille FAQ

Single Status Affidavit Apostille

What is a Single Status Affidavit?

A Single Status Affidavit is a document confirming that the holder has never been married, or that any previous marriages were legally ended by death or divorce. Anyone who is planning to get married abroad will be asked to provide this document as proof that he is free to marry. It’s also known as a “No Record of Marriage”.

Why do I need to apostille a single status affidavit?

You will be required to apostille a single status affidavit if you intend to get married in a country that is a signatory to the Hague Apostille Convention. You might also need to present this document to get a job in some countries.

Where can I get a single status affidavit if I am currently outside of the USA?

Please contact the local U.S. Embassy or U.S. Consulate office. You will need to have a single status affidavit completed and notarized by the U.S. Federal notary who is located there. Apply online on our website and send this document to our office after it has been notarized.

What if a single status affidavit is older than two years?

Some countries will accept only a recent Single Status Affidavit which has been issued in the past one to three months. In China, you may only do one Single Status Affidavit every 6 months, and the affidavit is valid for half a year from the date the consulate authenticates it. The affidavit must be submitted to the Chinese consulate for authentication within 90 days after it was apostilled. We recommend that you contact us to check with the country requirements on how old the Single Status Affidavit can be.

Where can I get an apostille stamp?

  • We have used a few different process servers and no one has been as easy to use as Aaapostille. They are making complicated issues easy to understand and communicate every step of the way. Svetlana has been very patient answering lots of stupid questions and made us feel comfortable and safe. The whole process was a breeze: we simply uploaded our docs online and then received them apostille in the mail in 5 days. No need to understand these complicated processes when you guys do it for us :) Thanks a lot!

  • We use Aaapostille for all our clients who need this service — Svetlana, Alex and their team are real professionals, very patient and never complain about our last minute super urgent requests (which are most of them :) We’re happy for your low rates, so we don’t have to overcharge our clients. Also, dealing with lots of consular legalisation orders, we got burned many times in the past with other services, who had no idea of particulars of consulate processing, which Aaapostile knows everything about!

  • Thanks for getting everything done so quickly! My deadline for submitting everything for a Postdoc program in Italy was fast approaching, and I was a nervous wreck with all other apostille websites giving me a runaround with processing times and complicated terms. It's really not a topic you’d want to spend your time on making last minute preparations. Very easy instructions and process, and real live people on the other end — so rare nowadays! Special thanks to Dimitri, who responded on a weekend, saving me a day!
