Common QuestionsHow can I get a Certificate of Divorce?
You do not need a Certificate of Divorce to make your divorce "legal" or "official" in BC. If you ever have to show legal proof of your divorce, you can use your divorce order. However, you can use the Certificate of Divorce to show legal proof of your divorce to third parties (for example, when you remarry) without giving away all the details in your divorce order. Some foreign jurisdictions may require a certificate if you are getting remarried.
