Go to the court house where the divorce paperwork was filed. You will be able to get a certified copy, for a fee.

Good luck!

Copy of the certified decree is OK.

You can, and should, send copies.

The stamps/seal.signature from the court is what makes it 'authentic'. You cannot 're-authenticate' it. You could order new certified(authentic) copies from the court, if you wish. You may even be able to order them online.

If you are still legally using your ex-husband's name, then that is the name you use on the forms. Only put your maiden name where it asks for other names used. Yes, include a copy of your previous marriage certificate to show the name change, since you currently go by a different name than shown on your birth certificate. Make sure to include the copy of that divorce decree too.
