I searched for this in the forums but came up empty. My fiancee is 47 and never married. She's collecting the documents required for the interview. What sort of proof can she get that she's single and never married? Would a notarized sworn statement suffice? Many thanks!

NOTE: If the link is broken, try http://travel.state..../fees_3272.html or go to http://travel.state.gov/ and search for "Reciprocity by Country" (they seem to change this periodically)
Most of the documents needed can be obtained from one of China's Notarial Offices (Gong Zheng Chu). All Chinese documentation to be used abroad is processed through the notary offices and issued in the form of notarial certificates. Notarial offices are located in all major Chinese cities and in rural county seats
The documents required are the GongZhengShu 公证书
Sample application for documents (your province or hukou may vary):
A notarial document will be in the standard white notarial booklet, have an official red seal, an English translation, and an attestation to the true translation.
Note that police records and single certificates are valid for one year from the date of notarization. Others are valid indefinitely.
Marriage certification for I-130 or K-3 must be in the same format.
If ANY document is unobtainable, you should submit a statement of WHY it is unobtainable, and what effort you made to obtain it.
