Good afternoon. I am hoping to get some help regarding the registration of a foreign divorce.

I was married in Long Beach California in 1992. However, we moved to Argentina in 2005 and divorced in Argentina in 2016.

In order to finish registering the divorce in Argentina the registrars office is requesting that the divorce first be registered in the United States.

I have explained to them that divorces are not registered in California if they are from another country. I have been asked to show them in writing that this is true.

Is there any way I can receive something in writing stating that foreign divorces are not registered at the California Registrars office?

Or if there is any information that may help me in resolving this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help.
