Can I get a copy of my marriage certificate after divorce?
Copies of marriage certificates can be ordered at any point after a marriage has taken place, even if a divorce has been granted.
If a divorce has been granted confirming that the marriage has legally ended, normally in the form of a decree absolute, it is advisable to always keep a copy of the marriage certificate for future purposes.
The marriage certificate is the document that affirms that two people were married. The record of marriage is usually created by a registrar following the wedding.
It is very common that when you are asked to provide documentation of a divorce, that the marriage certificate will also be requested alongside the Decree Absolute.
Should the marriage have been registered overseas, the marriage must be registered with a British consulate of the country the marriage took place. The UK authorities overseas will provide a local marriage certificate at the time of registration; however it is advisable to check that the registration of marriage is also recorded in the UK as this will make the process of obtaining an overseas marriage certificate easier.
Should you wish to order a copy of a marriage certificate, the most effective way to get the ball rolling on this, is for you to order online. Simply complete all the relevant fields on the order form and the order will be processed accordingly.
