What Is a Divorce Decree?
A divorce decree is signed by the judge and summarizes the terms of the divorce judgment. It formally ends the marriage of the couple and details how marital property is divided. If a spouse would like to revert to their maiden name, they can usually do that as part of their divorce. When a judge grants such requests, the divorce decree will include the court’s order regarding the name change, and can be used as proof that the spouse has legally changed their name. Most divorce decrees include the spouses’ identifying information as well as any minor children. They might include the court’s address and case number too.
What Is a Child Custody Agreement?
A child custody agreement describes the details of the arrangement that the parents have agreed to in terms of visitation and support. It might include instructions in regards to which parent has primary custody and visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent. Such agreements may also include a clause which outlines how parents can go about making changes to the child custody arrangement in case the need arises.

Can I Translate My Divorce and Child Custody Paperwork?
For official purposes you usually cannot translate your own legal documents. You have to render the services of a professional translator. If you want to use your translations in a court in the US, for example, you have to get a professional translation with the translator’s certification. If your divorce papers and child custody agreement is in a foreign language, please contact us regarding our certified translation services. Even if you are planning to use the translation for unofficial purposes it is probably still a good idea to get a professional translation because translators are trained to translate legal language. You might be fluent in the source and target languages, but you might not know legal terminology as well as a translator who specializes in legal translation and has many years of experience in the field.
Do I Need a Certified Translation of My Divorce Related Documents?
It depends on what you are planning to do with the translation. If you need the translation for official use, then you probably need a certified translation for your documents. For instance, if you are working on application for USCIS you need to submit a copy of your divorce documents plus their certified translations. Likewise, you will need to provide a certified translation of your divorce documents if you are planning to use the translations in a court. On the other hand, if your lawyer or another party just wants to know what the documents say you probably do not have to get a certified translation.
What Is the Cost of Professional Translation for Legal Documents?
The cost of certified translation for a legal document depends on several factors including word count, complexity of text, the purpose of the translation, and deadline. We usually do not quote based on the number of pages you have because some pages might be denser than others. To get a quote, please email your documents to firstname.lastname@example.org.
