Meta: Affidavit of Single Status is a sworn statement in which the affiant attests that they are single and may marry freely.

Single Status Affidavit

Single Status Affidavit may be called differently by various agencies and individuals:

  • Affidavit of Single Status
  • Letter of Freedom to Marry
  • Single Letter
  • Statement of Freedom to Marry

and so forth. However, all of the above are the same document. The main idea of the Single Status Affidavit (or however else you prefer to call it) is that it is your own statement taken under oath, in which you attest that you are who you claim to be and that you may marry freely. Many countries have their own unique requirements when it comes to the contents of such statement; however, the basic information is always the same:

  • Full name as in birth certificate
  • Citizenship
  • Place of permanent residency
  • Occupation
  • Marital status declaration
  • Affirmation/Oath

You may draft you own single status affidavit or you may have a professional prepare one for you. Before you do it on your own however, please consult someone competent to ensure that your affidavit does not need to contain any additional details. (Many Asian countries require information about your fiance/fiancee to be included into the document, while others may require a statement that you are not related).
