Has anyone else here had to provide a document stating that you and your fiance are both single in order for you to get married? We are looking to do our legal ceremony in Curacao and need to provide this documentation along with our birth certificates and copies of our passports to get permission to get married. This doesn't seem like it would be that hard, but marriages are only recorded by county and I can't seem to find an office that will do a search over the US to state that we are single. I will need to take this document, get it notarized, and then bring it along with our birth certificates to the secretary of state's office to get the Apostille seal.
Everyone tells us that it's easier to get married legally here first then do the symbolic ceremony elsewhere, but we're really hoping to avoid this.
Any help would be Greatly appreciated!
