Registered UK Apostille Service
Working with the FCO to Provide UK Legalisation Services
The decree absolute is a court document that officially ends a marriage in the UK. It is estimated that 42% of marriages now end in a divorce by the Office of National Statistics. If you need to provide this document to an overseas authority as evidence of a divorce you may be asked to get an Apostille.
This document is commonly legalised when an individual wishes to remarry or they would like to revert to the use of their maiden name. The Apostille is typically issued to this document to verify the authenticity of the court seal or stamp. It is also possible to process a solicitor certified copy of the document but we recommend processing the original wherever possible.
