If you were legally divorced, then you should have received a copy of the judgement of divorce that was granted. If you do not have a copy of that judgment, then your best bet is to contact the clerk of the court where the divorce was granted and they should be able to provide you a copy of the judgment.

I would check with the clerk of the court of whatever counties you and your spouse are located in. You could also check with the vital statistics department of each state that the two of you have lived in.

Were divorce proceedings ever instituted against you? If so, you would have received copies of the documents and had the opportunity to file an answer to them. If you know where the case was filed, you can contact the Clerk of Court and ask them about the status of the case.

    You don't provide enough information to even understand why you are asking the question, so it isn't really possible to answer it. If you know that a divorce case was filed and you are simply trying to find out if it was ever completed, you need to contact the clerk of the court where the case was filed. If you don't know if or where a divorce case might have been filed, you need to do a lot more work.

    In Virginia: The question assumes that a divorce proceeding has occurred, how recently you don't indicate. I suggest you first check with the clerk of court in the county where the divorce occurred to determine if a final order of divorce has been entered. The Clerk's office can tell you if the order has been entered and whether an appeal has been taken. If no appeal has been taken, the divorce is final 21 days after entry by the Judge.

    I presume the question suggests you do not know if the divorce is finalized. You need to contact the court where the divorce was filed to ascertain if there was a final judgment.
