I am trying to get a divorce from my partner but he has hidden

Customer Question

I am trying to get a divorce from my partner but he has hidden the marriage certificate and we got married abroad. Is it possible to get a divorce without a marriage certificate and if so, how do I go about proving that I am married to my partner?

Hello
Welcome to Just Answer.
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
The court will be able to accept a certified copy.
So my advice in the first instance that you contact the issuing authority abroad and ask that they send you a certified copy.
Please also note that if the marriage certificate is not in English then a certified translation to English will also be required.
You can seek permission from a District Judge that the marriage certificate be filed at a later date but this will only be granted if the matter is urgent - so you are really best contacting the issue authority in the country where you were married and asking them for a certified copy.
Kind Regards
Caroline
