Will I need my marriage certificate when applying for a divorce?
Yes. The original, or a certified copy of your marriage certificate must accompany the divorce petition when you lodge the papers at the court. If you cannot locate your marriage certificate, then you will need to obtain a certified copy; more information can be found by visiting the following website https://www.gov.uk/order-copy-birth-death-marriage-certificate.
If you have exhausted all avenues and are not able to obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate, then there are options available to you, although your divorce costs may increase. If you would like to discuss this further, then please do not hesitate to contact me.
