Divorce decree versus certificate

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi please I need help urgently. We have our CR1 interview coming up on the 17th and we have the certified copy of final decree of divorce from Texas, we don't have the divorce certificate 

 

This interview is at Lagos Embassy, does anyone know if the certified final decree of divorce will be accepted? If not, how can I get the divorce certificate, I searched Google and couldn't find anything for divorce certificate in Texas 

 

Thanks in anticipation

To be clear, what the document is called varies by State.  For some it is called "Decree Absolute".  Whatever is the final document issued as evidence the marriage is terminated, is what they are looking for.

The document you need is stamped or sealed or certified by the court, has the judge’s signature, directly awards or declares a divorce between you and your ex, and in Texas often finalizes a lot of other issues.

 

It might be several pages.  It might be a LOT of pages.  I saw one that was like 25 pages long one time.  Depends on your case.  Either way - send the whole package over.

 

Other states settle everything then grant divorce on a one-page seperate document.        

 

A ? “certificate” ? I assume applies to a divorced immigrant not the USC.  If previously married they have to provide whatever legal documention is issued by their home country and it varies a lot.

I divorced in Texas from my 1st Nigerian husband. We submitted certified Divorce decree to USCIS and now hubby had a copy at interview (this was 2016). You will be fine with Decree. If it was submitted at USCIS they probably will not ask for it at interview. But better to have and not need right.
