Decree Nisi / Decree Absolute Certified Translation

decree absolute

The Decree Nisi is the final part of the divorce process which officially terminates a marriage. In legal terms, a couple are still married until the Decree Nisi has gone through and becomes a Decree Absolute. This has now been replaced by a single final divorce order in modern divorce proceedings.

The Decree Absolute is the legal end of a marriage that allows the two individuals to legally remarry. It usually follows the Decree Nisi, which is issued six weeks beforehand, but in modern divorce proceedings this has been replaced by a final divorce order.

If you are an EU national, you need a Certified Translation of your Decree Absolute, to register your Divorce at your Consulate.

At Baraka Certified Translations, the price for your Decree Absolute Certified Translation is £30.

To have your Decree Absolute translated & certified:

  • Please scan your document to PDF or any image format.
  • E-mail us your request at

For any additional information, please call: +44 07815500826

Marriage Certificate Translation


Wherever your wedding takes place, legal use of that marriage certificate in another country requires it to be in the language of that country.

A certified translation means it has been performed by a professional qualified translator, and accurately reflects the original. At Baraka Translations & Services, we certify in-house, with our embossed seal, stamp and signature.

Our Marriage Certificate Translations are accepted by UK authorities, as well as Consulates. Our prices are very competitive and include proofreading, official Certification and postage to any UK address (always by recorded delivery as standard). The standard price for a Marriage Certificate is £30.

Baraka’s Marriage Certificate Translations are:

  • Fully certified
  • Embossed, stamped and signed
  • Fully recognised by UK authorities, including Home Office, NHS, HMRC, as well as Embassies and Consulates.

The Legalisation of a Translation by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) (Apostille)

You will need to check with the country requiring the certified translation whether it needs to be legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). If this is the case, Baraka Translations also provides a complete Legalisation (Apostille) Service to enable UK Documents to be correctly accepted overseas and from Embassies and Consulates.
