What is the Certificate of Non-Marriage?
The "Certificado de No Matrimonio" is an official document from the Registro Demográfico de Puerto Rico that certifies that you havenot remarried since your last divorce. It also applies to cases in which the applicant is a widow.
This Certificate is usually required if you are getting married abroad, in addition to the Birth Certificate and the Divorce Certificate (if already divorced in PR) or the Certificate of Unmarried Status (if never married in PR).
In general, when a person gets divorced in PR, the court is supposed to automatically send a copy of the Judgment to the Population Registry. However, it is important to note that in the past this sometimes did not happen. Therefore, it is necessary that after you place your order on this page, you email us a copy of the Judgment, if you have one. Otherwise, there is a small chance that when we go to apply for your Certificate, it will not be available because the Judgment was never registered. In such a case, however, we can take the additional step of seeking a copy of your Judgment from the court by making a separate order for a Certified Copy.
