You can get another copy of the order dissolving your marriage from the family Court where you were divorced. That would be the Rotorua family Court, and you should write to them with your full name and that of your husband and the approximate date you filed the application dissolving the marriage.

the contact details for the court are-

Rotorua email this court

Physical*****ROTORUA 3046

Postal DX: JX10550

Telephone 0800 268 787, or +64 9(###) ###-####from overseas

Fax 07(###) ###-####/p>


So I suggest you start by emailing the court and asking for a copy, and they may charge a small fee for a replacement.
