How to Get Single Status Certificate from Victoria, Australia

A single status certificate proves that the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) holds no record of current marriage in Victoria.
You can use a single status certificate as proof that you are not already married. You may need this proof if you want to marry overseas.
