When you plan a wedding abroad, many countries will require you to produce a document in which you declare that you are not already married and that nothing prevents you from entering into your intended marriage – often called an affidavit of non-impediment to marry (or, sometimes, a declaration of single status, an affidavit of marital eligibility or a statutory declaration of intended marriage).
NonImpedimentToMarry.com will guide you through this process with the minimum of fuss, so you can worry about your wedding whilst we worry about your paperwork. This site helps you get ready for your wedding abroad by producing your customised affidavit of non-impediment to marry. It costs just £70 inc. VAT.

Going the extra mile
Depending on the country where you’re tying the knot, you may need more than just an affidavit of non-impediment. There may be some additional paperwork or formalities you need to complete, such as getting your birth certificate legalised at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, producing a certified or sworn translation, or getting your documents notarised. That’s why NonImpedimentToMarry.com has teamed up with Dot Comma Translations and Vanner Perez Notaries so you can get all your paperwork sorted quickly and easily.
Remember, there is a difference between an affidavit/declaration of non-impediment and a certificate of non-impediment issued by your local registrar. This site will produce an affidavit of non-impediment to marry; the onus is on you to check that this is what you need before you order.
