Do you need to apostille a single status affidavit issued by the US Embassy in a foreign country?
If you are outside of the United States, the local US Embassy or US Consulate office should be able to assist you in completing a single status and also having it signed and notarized. Because you will be visiting a U.S. Federal Government office and having your document signed and notarized by a US Federal notary public, this document can then only be apostilled through our Washington DC apostille office.
Note: If you are planning to get married in another country who is a member of the Hague Apostille Convention, you will be asked to apostille a document called a single status affidavit. In some countries, you may also be required to provide this documentation for employment.
This document may also be referred to as:
- No Record of Marriage Apostille
- Certificate of Freedom to Marry Apostille
- Certificate of No Impediment for Marriage Apostille
- Certificate of No Record – Marriage
- Affidavit of Single Status
- Affidavit of Marriageability
- Certificate of No Public Record
- Eligibility to Marry
- Affidavit of Civil Status
Here is an example of a Single Status Affidavit / Affidavit of Civil Status issued from a U.S. Embassy / Consulate General:
