If you filed for divorce abroad, you can find information about the granting authority in your home country, including its name, current fees, and procedures for obtaining an official copy, on the U.S. Department of State website. (On the left of the site, you need to select the first letter of your country name, choose your country, and click on the “Marriage, divorce records” tab to view more details.) If you are not a party to the divorce, registrations are not available unless you can provide a signed and notarized document in the form of a letter, notice or affidavit that gives permission from one of the parties. Alternatively, if you have any of the parts present on you, you can get the documentation more easily. If a previous marriage ended with the death of your spouse or by annulment, you must file a photocopy of your spouse`s death certificate or act of annulment (see below for instructions on how to obtain these documents). You must also bring the original or certified copy of these documents to your green card interview, whichever is true. To find your divorce papers, the court needs the case number. If you don`t know your divorce number, you can try to register your case online by searching for an index on the court`s case information portal and searching for your name or the name of your spouse (“party name”) at the time of the divorce. In general, divorce records for the last 10 years are available on this site. Records relating to divorces granted in Ontario prior to 1979 can be obtained from the Archives of Ontario. The archives staff need the year of granting the divorce, the location of the court and the court file number. If you do not have this information, you should contact the court office or the Central Register of Divorce Proceedings. Before you go to the manager`s office, make sure you have some form of identification and your divorce number.
If you do not have the case number, the administrator can search for the party, the date, the lawyer or the judge. When a third party seeks a divorce order, the administrator may request a notarized letter or a signed affidavit from one of the parties who give permission to consult the document or obtain a copy of it. To obtain a copy of these documents, you must request them at the registry where the case was opened. Divorce is only considered final when a judge adopts a final decree, also known as a divorce decree. This document is the official result of a divorce action. The decree signed by the president of the court usually lists the parties involved as well as decisions relating to the custody and subsistence of the children, the division of matrimonial property and all other relevant matters arising from the divorce proceedings. The only document you can get from the court is the absolute decree that makes your divorce legal. Whether it is because you have completely changed your decree or you do not believe you have received an official certificate, it is possible to obtain a copy of the divorce papers. To get a certified copy of your divorce protocol, you need your Docket number. If you do not know what your Docket number is, please call the Probate & Family Court where your case was tried to obtain your Docket file number. Court staff will ask you about the nature of the case, the first and last names of the parties and the department where the divorce was filed, so they can help you.
