Divorce certificate

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Divorce certificate

Postby LAROCCAMOM » 24 Jan 2010, 23:18

My parents divorced 7 years ago, will I be able to present that certificate or should I get a new one?
Also, must it be apostilled or translated only?

One more thing...I read that they need the full court order and a letter from the court saying the divorce had not been contested, any ideas on how to get it?

Thank you

I actually didnt know a divorce certificate is required for parents. I thought it was just if the person applying was divorced. Can someone confirm that with me also?

I believe, but cannot say with absolute certainty, that parent's divorce documents are only necessary if the applicant is the child of a second (third, fourth...) marriage.

Thanks guys!
I re-read the consulate's website again and it doesn't specify.
I already told my mom I need the divorce certificate, I am going to translate it and apostille it.
Regardless if I need it or not, at this point, I rather take it with me!
The worst case scenario would be that they don't need it.
I just thought someone might have the answer to this.

Thank you once again

I have the same situation. I am the product of the first marriage. My parents divorced, only one remarried. I have the final decree/judgement but I didn't get it translated or apostilled as I will await to see if it is asked for at the consulate or not.
