Sworn Affidavit to prove single status in the U.K.

This answer was rated:

I am a resident in the UK, and have been here over 7 years for education purposes. I will be getting married abroad and one of the marriage registration requirements is to prove my single status (i.e. never married before/no live-in relationship) during my stay in the U.K.


 


Can I get a sworn affidavit from a lawyer to prove the above? How much can I expect it to cost?

Matthew J :

you can either get a solicitor to do it to make sure that everything is correct or draw up your affidavit yourself.

Matthew J :

The body of the affidavit is really up to you and the requirements of the organisation that you are doing it for but basically you just need to write the facts down as you need them said, usually in numbered paragraphs.

Matthew J :

The main things you need to be aware of is what to put at the top and the bottom of the main body of text

Matthew J :

at the top you put:-

Matthew J :
