Single Status Affidavit (also called "No Marriage Affidavit" or "Certificate of Freedom to Marry", "Certificate of Non-Impediment", "Affidavit of Eligibility to Marry", "Certificate of Free Status", "Free to Marry Statement", "Affidavit of Civil Status", etc.) is a sworn statement that you are not married at the present time and are eligible to marry. This document is almost always required as a supporting document for getting married in a foreign country. 

Single Status Affidavit forms are different for different countries. They reflect the requirements of the officials in the country where the document shall be used. Some Single Status Affidavits are bilingual (e.g. English/Spanish, English/Vietnamese, etc.) At the prosent time our samples are not downloadable. We will do our best to email the requested document to you as soon as possible. In most cases you will receive it by email within a few hours. Please contact us.
