I'm planning a wedding with my fiancee, who lives in the Philippines. We're getting married there, in Mataas na kahoy. However, there's a document that I need that I can't obtain in the Philippines because I don't have an embassy to get it from in the Philippines.
I need an affidavit that states that I'm single so that I can get married in the Philippines--it's a requirement, but the country of which I have a passport from does not have an embassy in the Philippines to offer service for that affidavit. I've lived in the US all of my life and just found out that I wasn't a citizen here. Instead, I'm a permanent resident--Is there a way that I can have a written affidavit from here in the US? If so, who would I need to notarize it to make it official so that I can use it to get married to my fiancee in the Philippines? I
can't seem to find the answers to this anywhere.
Please don't just tell me to get my U.S. citizenship--I already have that in process--but because the processing is being delayed, we don't know how long it will take, and we decided that we wanted to continue with our plans of getting married so that I can travel back to the US and finish the process when they finally schedule me to continue on with that.
I want to know how I can obtain an ACCEPTABLE document showing proof that I'm single so that we can get our marriage license, get married, and start our life together.
Also, I have government tax documents showing that my marital status is single--would that be an appropriate document as proof if I'm not able to obtain the affidavit of legal capacity to marry?
