Three Easy Steps
Ordering an Alberta Divorce Certificate or Divorce Judgment is fast & easy. Simply:
- Complete, print and sign the Alberta Divorce Certificate Application;
- Fax, Scan and Email or Mail your completed and signed form; and
- Receive your Divorce Certificate or Divorce Judgment by regular mail.
You will need to provide us with a copy of your Divorce Judgment or provide us with the full names of both spouses, year of divorce, court file number, and court registry location in order that we can obtain the Divorce Certificate. If you do not have a copy of your Divorce Judgment, we can obtain it from the Courts for you. If you do not know all the details of your divorce, we will need to conduct a Canada wide search of the Central Registry of Divorce Proceedings.
If the divorce was granted at least 35 years ago, you will need to consult the Provincial Archives of Alberta to obtain your divorce document. You may visit their FAQ page at https://hermis.alberta.ca/paa/ViewFAQ.aspx for details or by their contact information below.

Untie the Knot Divorce Service offers a variety of payment options. We not only accept payment by money order, Visa, Mastercard or American Express but also payment by PayPal and Interac Email Money Transfer.
If paying by Visa, MasterCard or American Express, we will require the security code, or CVV code. CVV stands for Credit Card Verification Value. The CVV is a 3 or 4 digit code embossed or imprinted on the signature panel on the reverse side of Visa, MasterCard and on the front of American Express cards. This code is used as an extra security measure to ensure that you have access and/or physical possession of the credit card itself.
If you wish to pay using the PayPal service, you must provide us with an email address. Upon review of your completed application, we will email you an invoice which you can then pay directly using PayPal.
If you wish to pay by Interac Email Money Transfer, we will contact you with further instructions upon review of your completed application.
It is impossible to provide you with an accurate time estimate to complete your request. Court Registries vary greatly in the time it takes to fulfill the request. If your divorce was granted more than a few years ago, the divorce file may need to be retrieved from the Court’s storage location. In most cases, you can expect to receive your Divorce Certificate or Divorce Judgment in approximately 3 to 4 weeks.
