Full Answer

If a person has misplaced his copy of the divorce decree, it is possible to obtain a copy. The clerk's office in the court where the divorce was filed is able to issue a copy, states LegalZoom. Another option is to contact the Department of Vital Records in the state where the divorce was filed. An attorney who represented a party in a divorce is sometimes also able to provide a copy if it cannot be found elsewhere. There are fee-based websites that provide a copy of a divorce decree when given the proper information to track it down.
