I am Indian national, am facing problem with document "certificate of marriageability" to marry my boyfriend who is german national. As this certificate is not provided by Indian authorities, I have submitted my affidavit about my single status from a lawyer at Tees Hazari court attested by SDM and ministry of external affairs but this is rejected by german registrar, they are asking for affidavit from Sarpanch and say that they have seen such affidavit earlier. But as we know there is no Sarpanch in Delhi but I don't know how to prove this to German registrars on paper. German registrars have an instruction sheet for India which says to accept certificate of marriageability or affidavits only from Sarpanch or mayor of city. Neither of these two posts exist in Delhi so I am kind of stuck to prove them this fact of non-existence of either the post of Sarpanch or the mayor of city on paper for Delhi.
Further German embassy at Delhi says that even if I can get affidavit declaration from municipal councillor or executive magistrate or district court or marriage officer, it will work for them and they also say that they have seen such affidavits earlier. Talking to a few lawyers, i am told that it is only possible to get attestation from these authorities on my affidavit and they will not issue any affidavit on their name. So I don't know where to get this affidavit declaration from one of above mentioned officers if german registrar and embassy claims to have seen an affidavit from a competent officer in India declaring the single status of the individual.
To get married in India, a Delhi family court lawyer says that I need to submit a no objection certificate (NOC) from German embassy at Delhi for my boyfriend to get married under special marriage act. But German embassy at Delhi requires my boyfriend to submit his certificate of marriageability from his local registrar in Germany to issue NOC for him at Delhi and his local registrar requires my certificate of marriageability to issue his certificate of marriageability. So it's kind of same problem on the document "certificate of marriageability" to get married in either Germany or India.
I am currently clueless on how to solve this problem. I have reached out to a few lawyers in India and a few in Germany and have not found solution from anyone, that's why posting on this open forum.
Appreciate any suggestions or experienced advices.
Thanks in advance
