We are archiving these POMS because the laws regarding Common-Law Marriage in foreign countries is rapidly changing and we do not want these POMS used to determine marital status. The best way to determine marital status in a foreign country is to check for a Precedent in the PR section of POMS or request a legal opinion from the Office of General Counsel (OGC). See GN
00307.257 for development of Common- Law Marriage outside the United States.
