How to get an apostille for a Single Status document in Florida?

If you are getting married in a foreign country, a Single Status document is the number one document that will be required.

In the State of Florida you can either get a Single Status Statement that is issued by the state, or prepare a Single Status Affidavit that will be signed by you and notarized by a Florida notary public. An Affidavit of Single Status is a sworn statement in which you attest that you are single and free to marry. We recommend the you ask your fiance(e) to to find out if your affidavit needs to be in any specific form or contain some specific additional details. The requirements differ form country to country.  

For apostille purposes both a Single Status Statement issued by the Florida Department of Health and a Single Status Affidavit singed by you and notarized by a Florida notary will be acceptable.

Florida Single Status Statement vs. Single Status Affidavit

pexels asad photo maldives 1024960In the State of Florida, there are two ways to obtain a Single Status document:

(a) Single Status Statement is issued by the Florida Department of Health
The Department of Health will search all 67 counties in the State of Florida to verify a marriage record is not on file. If no record is found, an official “Not Found” statement will be issued for the individual named on the application for the years specified.
Please note that after the ceremony, the marriage license is returned to the Clerk of Circuit Court to be filed and recorded. The Clerk will then forward the original license to the Bureau of Vital Statistics for permanent filing. This process takes approximately 60 days, therefore the Single Status Statement issued will not include the last 60 days.
We can get a Single Status Statment for you from the State of Florida, and have it apostilled. Please Order online.
(b) Single Status Affidavit signed by you and notarized by a Florida notary public.
