Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience and I'd like to assist you for informational purposes.
I understand that you do not want to give the entire decree of divorce, but rather you would rather just obtain some type of divorce certificate and give that instead, as proof of the divorce. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a certificate of divorce in TX. The divorces in TX are evidenced by the decree of divorce, issued by the clerk of court. Therefore, if you are in need of this document for a legal purpose, only the decree will do.
In the alternative, if you are just showing this to some person, who doesn't need legal proof, perhaps you can go to the county clerk where the divorce is filed, and ask that she print off the docket of filings in your divorce case. That would show each document filed in your divorce case, including that there was a decree of divorce, but it would not contain the contents of the documents. This wouldn't work for a legal purpose where the decree is required, but if you are just providing this document to someone for informational purposes, maybe it would satisfy their need, while helping you maintain your privacy.
