For divorces in EU member states (except divorces in Danmark) if the application for the divorce was filed after 1 March 2001 it is advisable to the certificate referred to in Article 39 of the Council Regulation (EC) No. 2201/2003 of 27 November 2003(1) concerning judgments in matrimonial matters from the court which issued the divorce decree. This certificate together with the divorce decree absolute are EU-wide recognized as sufficient proof of a valid divorce.
