Need for the Document
A Single Status Affidavit also referred to as a No Marriage Affidavit, Certificate of Freedom to Marry or Certificate of No Impediment, is a sworn statement saying that you are eligible to marry.
Overseas marriage authorities often require further evidence that the party is free to marry. Such evidence may be a statement from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages that there is no record of the person having been previously married or a 'Single Status Certificate' or 'No Records Result'.
Information which might help
Andorra has acceded to the Convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for Foreign Public Documents(known as the Hague Apostille Convention) on April, 15th 1996.
What is the Apostille and why it is used?
Through the Hague Apostille, any ContractingStateof the Convention recognizes the legal validity of a public document emitted in another ContractingState of the Convention.
It is a single process of legalisation and consists of placing an apostille stamp which certifies the authenticity of the signature on the public document itself or in an extension thereof.
Documents legalised with the Apostille procedure are directly recognized in any other country member of the Convention withoutany further proceeding.
The Apostille procedure suppresses the requirement of the diplomatic legalisation.
On the following link you can find an updated list of countries members of the Apostille: link http://www.hcch.net/index_fr.php?act=conventions.status&cid=41
Other uses of the Document/Certificate
You may require a Single Status certificate if you intend to be married overseas or if you are returning to your country of residence to be married. It certifies if you have been married in Andorra during a specified period.
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.
