This answer was rated:

Hi my dad died last year, he was Greek. My mom and dad got married in U.K. in the 80’s and divorced in 93 also in U.K. anyway my dad never registered his divorce so on his death certificate it still shows he’s married to my mom. I’ve been told that a copy and translation and apostle of the divorce decree is not enough and I need a form article 39?? Where can I obtain this please??

Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years experience.

Am I correct to assume you are trying to register the UK divorce in a foreign jurisdiction please as this should not be required if seeking to register the divorce in the UK. Are you able to confirm the position please?

Thanks. The Article 39 form and be obtained via the EU's e-Justice website here - I hope the link works as it is quite long:

Ok thank you. Do I just print and fill it out and then get apostle and translation? Thank you so much for your help .

You can complete the form online and then save and print it off. It may then need to be translated and apostilled as you say depending on the requirements of the local jurisdiction - your Greek lawyer will be able to confirm on this latter point.
