you have several options for obtaining a copy of your German divorce decree:
- contact the Family Court in German which issued the divorce
- contact one of the lawyers involved in the case
- contact your ex-husband
It depends on your specific case of course, whichever of these is the easiest and quickest option.
When you contact the Family Court, you will need to include as much information as possible:
- names of both spouses
- approximate time of the divorce
- date of the marriage
- addresses of both spouses then
- DOB of both spouses
If you need any letter to be written in German, I'll be happy to help. I won't even charge my full fee for it, but instead accept one of the books of my wishlist http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/books-my-wishlist/
as a sign of appreciation.

QUESTION: to contact family court I tried my german is not good enough,they did not speak English,i don't know any lawyers involved, my ex got it in 1991 my ex was on facebook I tried asking him but he said hes married again and not gonna waste his time so im loosing my mind trying to get such a simple paper and ive called many lawyers here that cant help since its out of usa
As I said, I'll be happy to help. Just contact me directly with all of the details listed above and I can set up the letter or e-mail to the court in German.
If that won't work, we'll get the record from the public registry in Germany which would at least have the information about your husband's divorce because otherwise he couldn't have remarried later.
