Provincial Court and Judicial Offices

To order a divorce certificate, you will need to contact the courthouse where the divorce was filed. If you know where the divorce was filed, you can send them a request in writing (including the court file number), along with their fee and a prepaid return envelope. The fee and processing time may vary depending on the province where the divorce was filed.

Here are the websites that provide information on courts in your Province or Territory:

If you do not know where the divorce was filed, you will need to contact the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings. They maintain a record of all Canadian divorces. Once you obtain the information you need, you can proceed to order the divorce certificate from the court.
