meldebescheinigung familienstand says "unbekannt"

1 post in this topic

I need your help please.

I moved to Germany as a single person about 2 years ago. When I did my Anmeldung, I was no doubt asked the usual set of questions, but understood very little of what was being said at the time.
Somehow this has resulted in my "familienstand" (marital status) being recorded as "unbekannt" (unknown) on my meldebescheinigung (registration certificate).

Up to now, this has presented no problem, but now I want to get married (in Denmark) and so need this status to be "single". I have an appointment with the relevant Rathaus department on Thursday, but would like to get a feel for what to expect.

Am I correct that this is basically their mistake and that they should just correct it? I have paid Class 1 (single) tax since I arrived.
How else would I be able to prove that I am single?

How can my status be "unknown"?


Thank you for your time
