No Record of a Marriage


No Record of Marriage Certificate Application Form

If you are planning on marrying in a foreign country then sometimes a Certificate of No Record of Marriage is fundamental. It will be necessary to plan ahead and find out if the country you are intending to marry in is a signatory country of the Hague Convention of 1961. Countries that recognize the Hague Convention of 1961 will be using a system of documentation that can afford the individual an easier paperwork process. In these countries to use the documents in question your certificate will need to be Apostilled. However, if the country that you are getting married in is not then other means will be essential. For example, the process of authentication Certificate of No Record of Marriage in a non-Hague Convention country is done on at least three different levels. Unfortunately this is a longer process.

Many names for this type of document can be found: Certificate of No Impediment, Single Statement, No Marital Status Certificate or Negative Statement of Marriage. However, it is a government document that provides information saying that a search has been conducted and no record of marriage has surfaced. This is a peculiar document in the fact that the process is not necessarily undertaken statewide; moreover, this kind of article is limited in terms of its jurisdiction. The No Record of Marriage generally operates on a more granular level; that is, in the United States of America this government record operates on the county level. For example, Florida can conduct state wide document searches; however, being that no national database exists anyone can be married in one state and show a status of non-married in another. Essentially, each state is not aware of transactions in another: one state will not have a record of even a neighboring state.

Foreign Authorities

It is advisable to follow the guidelines that certain authorities deem necessary. Those wishing to marry overseas will need special documentation. First, couples will have to present a declaration that is processed by your local office where marriage documents are produced. This must be from the state where you live in the United States of America. On this statement will be recorded the fact that there has not be any marriage in recent years.

Due to the fact that these types of documents are sought for foreign involvement one will need the local or state registrar’s account or declaration to be authenticated to work abroad.

A special note

Please be aware that the Certificate of No Record of Marriage will not be accepted by some foreign countries marriage authorities that are more than three months old.
