Write to the sheriff court where the decree was granted, give them all the info you can to help them find it. You will have to pay for a copy.

Thanks for the reply...I have already been in contact with the sheriff's court...although they have the extract with regards to my decree...they do not have any info regarding the legal seperation which preceded the divorce by about 9 months...it is the extract of minutes from the seperation that I am needing.

It sounds like you're looking for a copy of your separation agreement. This is normally registered in the Books of Coincil and Session in the General Register Office in Edinburgh. You can get their address in the phone book. The purpose of regstration is to allow a copy to be obtained if needed at any time and to allow the agreement to be enforced if the other party doesn't comply with it. You will need to give them details of the parties to the agreeemnt and a rough idea of when it was registered.
