I am a Jamaican born and a Canadian citizen. I got married in 2011 in Kingston Jamaica. My wife and I never lived together, she never joined me in Canada. We both decide to get a divorce for personal reason. She told me she filled and got the divorce. However we are not on good term so she refuse to inform me if the divorce was final, or send me copy of the divorce certificate. I am engage  to be married again. I would like to know if the divorce is final, how to get a copy of the certificate if the said divorce was final how to I find out if I am divorced, or obtain a copy of the divorce certificate.

Dear BJ,

Thank you so much for writing, and do understand your situation.
However unsure where the divorce took place, I wouldn't want to mislead you.

At this time, I recommend you contact the Supreme Court in Kingston for advise or records, or the court house which was the nearest to you in Jamaica and ask for Legal Aid for advise.

Should the divorce be final, there will be records, yet I do not know the Jamaican Divorce Laws to guide you accurately.

I do hope this small information is useful, and do wish you the very best in your search,
