Single Status Affidavit: A single status affidavit, in Texas, is a legal document that allows you to prove that you are single. In order to use this document, you must be able to provide proof of your marital status. In general, a person can use this document if they were divorced up until 3 months before the date of purchase.
In Texas, there are several ways to prove your single status. The most common way is for you (or your spouse) to have filed for divorce or annulment and received a final judgment from the court. If you are using a divorce decree from another state, then it must be accompanied by an affidavit from that state explaining why it was issued and showing that it has been filed under seal with the court clerk in that state.
If you have a single status affidavit and it does not meet the requirements for an AOS, then you will need to get it apostilled. This is a process that verifies the authenticity of your document. An apostille is issued by the Secretary of State or another official who has been designated by their state to do so.
There is a fee to get an apostille. It can take anywhere from one to four weeks for your document to be processed, depending on the state where you live and in which country it was issued.
You can always hire apostille services to get your single status affidavit apostille.
A single status affidavit is a legal document that states you are currently single. This will be used as evidence for an AOS application and must be certified by a notary public or county clerk.
