I need an Affidavit of “single status” in order to be married or PACS’ed in France (Attestation tenant lieu de certificat de coutume et de célibat)
To meet the requirements of the French government, U.S. citizens may sign an Attestation tenant lieu de certificat de coutume et de célibat (PDF-388 KB) attesting that they are free to marry or enter a PACS.
This form does not require notarization by the U.S. Embassy. If you wish to have your signature legalized you may do so at the local city hall – mairie – with a valid U.S. passport.
If the mairie insists that the document must be notarized by the Embassy, you may make an appointment for a notary service at the U.S. Embassy in Paris or the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille or Strasbourg. The consular fee is $50 per seal. Information on scheduling an appointment in Paris, Marseille or Strasbourg is available on the top of this page.
