If you need to replace a lost copy of a Decree Absolute or require an extra copy for legal reasons including Remarriage, Pension Applications etc you are able to order an official court duplicate through our website. If you are unsure of the Year and Court where your divorce was granted a 10 year search (eg 1970-1979) of divorce records will be undertaken to locate and supply an offical court stamped copy of the Decree Absolute and the cost is £95.00 plus postage. However, if you already know the court and case number details the cost is £55 plus postage and you will receive a part-refund of the full amount paid when the document is dispatched
Depending on the information and search years provided for Divorces registered within England & Wales, dispatch to you is normally between 15-22* business days. Records of divorces were not generally computerised until apx years 1998-2000 therefore records prior to this are archived and need to be searched and retrieved manually. However, if you already know the court and case number a copy of the divorce certificate will usually be mailed within 7-15 business days
For divorces registered in Scotland the service usually takes between 4-6* business days prior to dispatch
As part of our service for overseas customers we will scan the certificate and attach to our confirmation of posting email - At no extra cost
*If you require a certified sealed copy signed by a Judge this can take up to 30 business days for dispatch.
On 22nd April 2014 the courts within England & Wales stopped using the 'red stamp' and now replacement certificates are issued with a black stamp which reads 'The Family Court'. These are still the same official documents required for legal purposes
