What is a "Certificate of No Appeal" for a Divorce

Postby phil100a » 02 Mar 2009, 20:23

Hope all are well.

The San Francisco Consulate requests a "Certificate of No Appeal" to accompany a divorce decree. I called the office in New York (where I used to live) that issued my divorce decree and they said they had never heard of a "Certificate of No Appeal". they asked me for guidance in explaining what it is. Does anyone have any idea?

Thanks, in advance.
Phil

It sounds as though you have what you need. The long form Judgement and Decree papers.Why a certificate of no appeal, if what you are presenting to the San Fran consulate is showing proof of just that? There is no appeal if, which usually somewhere on the document it clearly states that "Each party is herein entitled to a final decree of divorce" or "Each party is entitled to marry again" How much more paperwork do they need ? If you have this document, I'd scan it and email it to the consulate and see if they will accept only this as it sure seems plenty. Good Luck !

Johnny, Thanks, a million! Grazie mille! I'll forward this to the Clerk in Monroe County. She can use it as a template, or help her find the right document in her files.

Hi, JCAT:

Here's the language from the San Fran Consulate website; they ask for the following re: marriage information.
"1) If you are or were married, you must submit a certified copy of your marriage certificate with apostille, and copy of your spouse’s birth certificate. If you have been previously married and divorced or are a widow(er), you must also submit those marriage, divorce and/or death certificates, in certified copy, with apostilles. The divorce decree must also include a “certificate of no appealâ€
