Copy of a Scottish Divorce Decree

Here you can purchase a copy of a Scottish Divorce Decree Absolute, suitable for use for all official and legislative purposes.

In the event that a matching record is found, you will receive a certified copy of the decree absolute. If there is no trace of a decree having been granted, you will be issued with a 'no-trace' certificate. Standard orders are typically fulfilled within 2 weeks. Priority orders are completed within 1 week.

NOTE: Please be aware that any certificate issued after 2006 is only available directly from the General Register Office. If this is the case, go to to order your certificates. We may still be able to obtain the certificate for you from a local registry office, but be advised that this is likely to take longer than the stated timespan.

Note 1: Stated delivery times are in addition to the time taken to complete the service chosen.

Note 2: We are only able to provide Scottish Divorce Decrees issued after 1984. If they were issued before this date, we will not be able to provide them.

Guidance Notes

For overseas use, please be aware that some overseas authorities will require to you to have your document 'Legalised' to prove authenticity. This is known as an Apostille and is carried out by the British Foreign & Commonwealth Office. This often affects passport applications, social security applications and property purchases so you are advised to check before you order. We are happy to provide the Apostille service to you order, however please note that this adds between 1 day and 2 weeks to the order process depending upon the chosen option. The Apostille service charges start from £59.00 per certificate.
