Hi Ms. Stewart. I got married to my ex wife in 2010 in Jamaica. She has told me she is currently getting the divorce done but will refuse to give me a copy of the divorce once its done in the last couple of weeks. Once i've been told the divorce is final how do i go about getting a copy for myself. I live in the US. i need to know where do i go to obtain a copy of the divorce for my self without any kind of conflict. Also can you tell what do i need to know/  what information do i need to about her. The only thing i remember about is her full name. I've finally found my soul mate and i would like to get married to her in Jamaica in October 2013. I just want really get help on this. can you please direct me....Thx so much!

Dear Troy,

May I say that I am sorry about the difficulty you are going through, and if I understand you well, you are divorcing someone from Jamaica ? Is the Divorce taking place in Jamaica ?

If this is the case, I think the best way to go about it is to contact the Legal Aid at the Supreme Court in Kingston and which is the Court which proceeds with Divorces.

I hope this is useful, and do apologize for not being able to provide more information.

Wishing you to have a safe new day,
