Divorce Certificate - Help Please!
« on: October 22, 2007, 09:28:29 am »
I applied by letter as instructed by the "Registrar" in Jhb to get a copy of my divorce certificate from them.  Was told to send a letter with case number and revenue stamps and sase(self addressed stamped envelope) to them and within a week they would post it back to me.  Well that was on the 22nd August and still nothing.  I have phoned them and had no reply, "I don't know what you're talking about", the guy is on course and any other possible excuse from them.  Now they're telling me my letter was not received  :knuppel2:

Is there any other way I can get this certificate from them? I'll even pay to get it!!

Sorry Mandy can't help.  Maybe go in and kick up a storm if it's close or send it again with registered mail?

I would go in but I'm in CT and they're in Jhb.  That makes it a touch difficult.  I'm almost out of time now so to send another letter wouldn't be cutting it far too fine!!
Thanks for the suggestions anyway.

There's some service mentioned on here somewhere, that will get all such sort of paperwork for you, for a fee of course.  They guarantee within 7 days?

What about sending it overnight through DHL and then at least someone  on that side has to sign for it.  :)

Thanks for all the suggestions.  Tried Bunnyhop.  Took them 3 days to reply to my email and then they say they can't help me.  Looks like I'll have to go the DHL way or book a ticket to Jhb to do it myself.

The lawyer doesn't exist anymore.  Was de-barred many years ago.

nope, no luck yet.  Haven't tried the DHL route yet either.  Trying to get a friend in Jhb to help.
