Attestation Of Divorce Certificate For UAE

Updated on: 22 Sep 2022

The process of certifying the court-issued divorce certificate that ends a marriage conclusively is known as divorce certificate attestation. A divorce certificate lists the names of the parties who have separated, the location and date of the marriage's dissolution, as well as the obligations and privileges granted to each party as a result of the dissolution. In order for authorities, institutions, and businesses within its borders to accept a divorce document that was issued outside of the UAE as official, it would need to be attested.

Apostille for Divorce certificates

Apostilles are provided by Hague Convention signatory nations, such as India, by stamping official labels on processed papers, such as divorce decrees. The document in question must first be authenticated by the designated authority of the issuing state, which in India is the Home Department of that particular state, before the MEA can do this. The MEA applies the apostille stamp, however this is insufficient to give the document UAE validity; it still needs to be authenticated through conventional means. Due to this, clients who want to certify their divorce documents frequently turn to attestation services in Dubai.
