How do I get my divorce certificate?
Step 1: Make sure 31 days have passed since your divorce order.
In person: Attend at the Supreme Court registry where your divorce was filed. The cost for a divorce certificate is $40.
By mail: Mail a letter to the Supreme Court registry where your divorce was filed. Include in the letter:
- The court file number or the full names of both parties who divorced
- Your mailing address and telephone number
- A cheque or money order for $50 payable to the Minister of Finance (includes $10 mailing fee)
If you live outside Canada, and are unable to pay using Canadian funds, find out what payment options are available:
If you're not sure where your divorce was filed: The Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings for Canada can confirm the location where a divorce was filed. However, they cannot provide an official divorce certificate.
