The dept of motore vechicle here in florida has sent me a notice to bring my birth certicate, divorce papers, drivers license, registration and car insurance papers to their office and take an eye test and written test and proof of home, electic & water bills. I was divorced 40 years ago and the exhusband dies 22 years ago. I no longer have any of these papers, neither does the lawyers office and suffolk county records wants an index number to look for me I dont have it.
Some of those documents you mention are routine nowadays to get sufficient identification for terrorism screening purposes. Divorce papers, though, are usually not one of those documents. My guess is that you want a license that has a different name than you've been using in the past. You need to start out by asking the department why they want the divorce papers, and if it's a name issue, ask what you can provide instead of those papers, since they no longer exist. If it is a name change issue, and you can't resolve it with the department, consult an attorney (in person).
