Charges for Dominican Republic divorce papers
We charge in two stages:
Search fee US$95 or US$195 - Whichever document you need, we initially search at the registry office, and from the registry office we obtain the details of the court decree. Our search fee depends on how much information you can give us about the divorce: If you know the place and exact date of the divorce OR if you have an old copy of your decree/certificate that you could send us, we charge a US$95 search fee. If you do NOT know the exact date OR place of the divorce, or if the divorce was from before 1945, we charge a US$195 search fee. Once we locate your divorce record at the registry office, we shall send you by email a draft print-out of your divorce record as held in the registry office.
Our fees for your Dominican divorce documents - All fees for Dominican divorce papers mentioned below include shipping by certified international airmail which generally take between 2 and 5 weeks to arrive. For a supplement of only US$95 we can offer delivery via DHL courier which takes just a few days to arrive most places:
|Your Dominican divorce certificate||The divorce certificate is definitive proof that the divorce is irreversible and final, and that the marriage ended. Cost for an original long-form divorce certificate with legalisation and apostille.||US$115
|Your Dominican divorce decree||From the court, we shall have it certified and apostilled for it to be valid in most countries.||US$295
|Your entire divorce file from the Dominican court||This includes:|
A certified and apostilled divorce decree.
All documentation on file in the courthouse relating to your divorce such as copies of custody/separation agreements etc, and perhaps even a copy of the divorce announcement which appeared in the newspaper. Because not all of these documents were issued by the court (newspaper announcement etc), the entire file cannot be legalised or apostilled, only the decree.
|Special deluxe Dominican divorce|

Divorce certificate (legalised & apostilled) including translation into English.
Divorce decree (certified & apostilled), translation not included but we can quote for this once we have seen the decree.

Shipping by DHL.
What extras charges might there be?
Do you need your Dominican divorce documents for use in Austria, Belgium or Canada?
If so, the following applies to you:
BELGIUM - Dominican certificates for use in Belgium must be legalized by the Belgian Embassy in Havana, Cuba. For US$95
we can courier your Dominican certificate to your embassy in Jamaica, but you would be responsible for paying them for their legalization, and for shipping your certificate to Belgium.
CANADA - The Canadian government does not consider a Dominican apostille to be final proof of your certificate's authenticity, therefore if you are Canadian and your certificate is to be used in Canada, it must be legalized by the Canadian embassy in the Dominican Republic.
We charge US$95
for this service which includes the official embassy fee and our services.
Other countries other than Belgium and Canada may require that Dominican documents also be legalised by their respective embassies in Santo Domingo.
Your Dominican divorce documents translated
For an extra charge, we can have your Dominican divorce documents translated into English, Dutch, French, German, Italian or Russian by a certified legal translator. Many clients have told us that this is much cheaper than they can obtain locally.
