Hi folks, I am trying to understand on where I can obtain a "No Objection Certificate" affidavit. I am a US Citizen who will be marrying my fiance in India. 

I am currently residing in the USA. 


I think NOC is also known as a Single Status affidavit. From my understanding this is a letter which proves my current marital status. 


Can I go to my local city hall and get this document?

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! 

If you're marrying in India under the Special Marriage Act, they ask for a NOC certificate from the US Embassy in India. 

You will have to make a trip to the embassy for this. Check here https://in.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/marriage/ 

You have to schedule a notary appointment from the link above. Then enter the embassy with your US passport and they will make a notary document which will look something like the image below. 
The charges for it are $50 IIRC and you can pay via credit card (at least for USCIS/Embassy office in Delhi)
