What is the difference between a divorce decree and a divorce certificate?

There is no difference between a divorce decree and a divorce certificate, they can also be referred to as a Decree Absolute, Divorce Affidavit, Legal Decree, or Divorce Absolute. The terminology may differ, but they all serve the same purpose. They are suitable for both legal and family history uses. 

You may require a decree absolute if you need to prove your marital status, or if you get remarried.

Should you require a certificate of divorce which is the same as a divorce decree, UK Document Services can help. 

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.
