Affidavit of single status for Colombia

free download 1 1Both spouses will be asked to present proof that they are eligible to marry -- in other words, that they are not currently married. For a Colombian citizen, this is a relatively simple matter of requesting a copy of his or her civil registration, a document issued by the Colombian National Registry that indicates marital status. No such document exists in many jurisdictions in the United States, however, and most U.S. citizens will therefore have to discuss with the notary what substitutes will be acceptable. Some notaries may allow you to present a signed, notarized affidavit swearing that you are unmarried (free download), or letters from friends or family. If prepared in the United States, these notarized affidavit and letters would have to be accompanied by an apostille. Apostilles have to be from the state where the notary public (who notarized the affidavit or letter) is qualified. For requirements, please select the state from the left menu. Please contact the notary before preparing this document!
