The Single Status Affidavit is a document that is used in Texas to determine if a person is married, divorced or widowed. It is also used to determine if a person has been declared legally incompetent. The affidavit must be signed by the applicant and at least two witnesses, who must verify that the applicant’s statement is true and correct. Once completed, the affidavit will state whether you are single or not.
Who Should File an Affidavit?
If you are single and want to prove this fact to another party, such as an employer or landlord, you will need to file an affidavit of single status. This document can also prove that you are not married if someone challenges your claim of being unmarried. You may also use this document if you have been declared incompetent by a court of law but your name still appears on public records as married or divorced.
How Do I Get a Copy of My Marriage License?
To obtain a copy of your marriage license, visit the County Clerk’s office where you were married and ask for it in person or by mail. If you were not married in Texas but moved here after being wed elsewhere, then contact your local county clerk’s office directly to find out how to obtain a copy of your marriage license. You may also want to ask for a certified copy, which will include the names of both parties, their ages at the time of marriage and when the document was issued.
How To File for a Single Status Affidavit?
The easiest way to remove a marriage from your record is to file for a single status affidavit. This document can be obtained at your local county clerk’s office, and it will legally declare you divorced or separated from the person named on your license. You must provide proof of the date of marriage (e.g., wedding certificate) and proof of current residence in order to receive affidavit of single status form. Once filed, you’ll receive a copy of the document back with an official stamp from the county clerk’s office confirming that they’ve accepted it into their files.
