Single Status Affidavit


Single Status Affidavit Application Form

The word freedom loosely means that there is a quality or a state of being free; that is, freedom exists without the need for force or constraint regarding personal elections or your actions. If you or a loved one is planning on getting married outside your country of birth and you are not from that region than it is paramount to acquire paperwork and documents that are needed. After all a wedding should be a joyous occasion. There is freedom to do things but sometimes with a little paperwork.

In another country proof will be vital to demonstrate the fact that you are who you say you are. Other foreign country authorities will request documents. One of the individuals in question will need a document that states some personal information. Are you single? Were you married and now divorced? Also, these kinds of details help to establish that you are intending to marry in the country you are traveling in and are proof that you are not married currently: these are essential facts. Through a sworn affidavit the affiant confirms that they are who they claim to be. The Single Status Letter or Affidavit says that they are able and free to marry among other things.

Bear in mind that one fact about the Single Status Affidavit is that it is not a government document; rather, it is a letter from the affiant signed in front of a notary public.

An interesting fact about this type of document is that there are many names given for it. For example look at this list: "Single Status Statutory Declaration" or a "Certificate of Legal Capacity to Contract Marriage" or a "Single Status Certificate" or "Free-to-marry statement".

A special document

Sometimes it seems like in the United States of America there is paperwork for everything. It would be hard to believe that currently there does not exist a basic "Certificate of Freedom to Marry or Free to marry statement" in this country. But it doesnít. Several U.S Embassy stopped practicing this a few years back; however, one can undergo a sworn affidavit that testifies to your marriage freedom; in other words, your right to marry.

Years ago at the U.S Embassy level Americans were granted rights to swear to an affidavit of entitlement to marry in front of a consular office.

In recent times, and due to local administrators, officials interpreted these records to signify that the Embassy had verified the content of the individualís testimony. Unfortunately, the consular officers were only weighing in on the fact that the individual in question had simply provided a statement and nothing else.

The ďFree-to-marry statementĒ is itself a statement of origin of oneís own liberty to marry. Almost all foreign lands will require that a couple furnish specific paperwork or an affidavit before they will grant a marriage license. Also this document will play a supporting role on the road to marriage overseas with other documentation.
