Depending on your circumstances, professional translation services may form an essential part of the divorce process. Often a difficult time, we can help you to avoid stress by making sure any linguistic requirements are taken care of.
Translating Divorce Documents
There are a number of documents that may be necessary as part of divorce proceedings, not all of which will require translation. When completing a divorce, a common document that may need translation will be your original marriage certificate.
Getting divorced in the UK but received your marriage certificate in another country? You’ll need to get a certified translation of the marriage certificate to enable the ratification of your divorce by the UK legal system.
Recognising Translations in UK Courts
Certified translation involves a document being translated and signed by a certified translator or translation agency. This ensures that the relevant authorities will recognise the translation as being true and accurate, which will help to minimise any confusion. See an example of our certifying letter here.
You’re also likely to need a Statement of Truth when translating your marriage certificate. This is a further certification required by UK courts that demonstrates the validity of the document in question, such as the original marriage certificate.
Translation and Divorce Outside of the UK
Divorce proceedings can vary significantly between countries, so it’s always important to check with the authority requiring the translation first. Some countries, such as Spain, will require sworn translation as part of the verification process, while others may need notarisation for translations to be legally recognised.
Wherever you’re getting in touch from, we’ll be able to assist you with any translation issues thanks to our professional experience in over 300 languages. Our translators work only in their native tongues and in their own specialists fields, which include divorce proceedings and other legal issues.
