Finding Divorce Record
« on: Thursday 28 April 16 18:22 BST (UK) »
Hi Can anyone advise. A friend of mine separated from his then wife approx 15 years ago. Their home assets etc were sorted out via solicitor. Now my friend wants to marry. Unfortunately he can not remember receiving decree absolute.Is there anyway he can find out.
Any help appreciated.

He could contact the solicitor.

Do they remember which Court dealt with the case?     Contact that Court.

Look up the HMCT   web site.

I think they have an office on High Holborn  in London.

They may have to send a fee for getting a copy of the decree, whichever one it is.

From what he told me he can not remember any record of his divorce. Does not know if he is still legally married. I thought that if marriage has been dissolved decree absolute (if there is a way of getting it ) would help. I wonder if solicitor who dealt with settlement would know.

There is a Central Registry  of Her Majestys Court Service  at High Holborn.  He can ask for a copy of the decree from them.

Might be easier to go to the nearest County Court to where he or his wife were living at the time - many solicitors will destroy their files after 6 years and the Family Court at High Holborn have "disorder and chaos" as their mantra  ;D

I think a copy costs 25.

If you go on to the Courts Service website and search for the County Court nearest, they often have a family enquiries email address.  Some are more helpful than others though......

Thurlby, Baker, Kilbon - Lincolnshire
Hurry, Bishop - Cambridgeshire
Pretty, Coulson - Rutland
