How do I get a Certificate of Divorce?
We can obtain a Certificate of Divorce for you for a nominal fee ($135 - including all taxes and disbursements) if you have filed a copy of your Order of Divorce (If you were divorced in British Columbia).
If our firm obtained your divorce for you, do not worry if you cannot find your original Order of Divorce since we will have it in our files.
If your divorce was obtained by yourself or another law firm and you have misplaced it, we can apply to the court to get a replacement.
A Certificate of Divorce is necessary if you are divorced and plan to remarry. It may also be necessary for other matters, such as dividing pensions and property or immigration issues.
There is a waiting period of 31 days after the date your Order of Divorce was granted before we can apply for your Certificate of Divorce.
After the 31 days have passed we can normally obtain your Certificate of Divorce within 2 to 3 business days.
