    I attempted to register the certified divorce decree obtained from the Clerk of the NJ Supreme Court with the Italian authorities. But they didn’t accept it because they say it is not the “Passato in Giudicato” which translated into English is Certification of Res Judicata of divorce. Can you tell me how and where I can obtain this document. Thank you

    I am 80 years old. I married Julius Ragickas (born 4/12/1925) on 4/7/1984, Julius died on 4/14/1989.
    I had remarried and my married name is now Caroline C. Ragickas Angelli.

    At this late time in my life I need to obtain a copy of the divorce decree between Julius Ragickas and Catherine A. Ragickas for legal reasons pertaining to inheritance for me and Julius’s grown children.

    At the time of his divorce Julius lived in Wayne, Ner Jersey. His wife lived in Powell Tennessee.
    I believe the divorce decree was issued via Passaic County N. J. sometime between 1982-1984. I don’t know the exact date. Catherine died in 2000 or 2001.

    How can I obtain a copy of their divorce decree? I cannot travel up to N.J. or for that matter anywhere outside of Florida where I now reside.
