You should check with the Registro Civil. At the bottom of the page, you will see references to divorce. They maintain the divorce records there.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
OK I will try that thanks you. Also is it true that it would show on the thier marriage certificate ?
Expert:  Steven K. replied 11 months ago.

Although that page refers to commencing the actions, that is the agency that maintains the records.

That agency keeps track of marriage records as well.
