What do you need a copy of the Final Decree of Divorce for? Normally, one certified copy should be plenty for most anything.

This information is not legal advice and does not form an attorney-client relationship.



i am sorry, i didnt explain myself, i am going to court 7-1-2013, i have printed all the forms and have filed for divorce. the website said to take the hard copy for the judge to sign ,but the lady in the clerks office said i also needed to make a copy and bring that also.

The extra copy(s) are so you don't have to pay the Clerk to make copies if you want to take them with you. You will have to pay for a Certified Copy.



thank you


You need to bring at least three: one for the court to keep, one to be sent to your ex, and one for you to keep.


If you are talking about the petition for divorce you need at least three copies.
