Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
You can get a copy of your divorce/dissolution extract by applying in writing to the court which granted the divorce/dissolution. You should provide as much detail as you can, for example the name of parties, date of divorce/dissolution, date and place of marriage/partnership. A fee will be payable, The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service do not hold historical divorce/dissolution records. Records that are older than 25 years are held by the National Records of Scotland. You can also order an extract from the Register of Divorces (post 1984) from the National Records of Scotland. If you are not sure if you are divorced or not give as many details about you and your husband by way of full names, date of marriage etc. The sheriff court to get in touch with is likely to be the one you were local to at the time of separation.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
