Divorce Certificate - How do I get this?

My divorce was granted by a Zurich court in March this year. The only letter I received from the court stated that if no objection was recieved, the divorce would be effective 10 days henceforth. I paid the fees (+2 months ago), but since then I've received nothing. Basically I don't have the absolute confirmation/certificate that I'm divorced. I know that the divorce HAS been granted as I received a letter from my local Gemeinde asking if I wanted to change back to my maiden name since the divorce was active since 22 March.
I'm sure someone out there will have gone through this procedure - when/how do I get this confirmation certificate???
Thanks loads for your help.

Ring the court up and ask them. That's what I did for a copy of mine.

Cheers Flashman, I wasn't even sure they issued an official certificate or whether I had to make do with a copy from the local register confirming my status, so 2 questions answered

Re: Divorce Certificate - How do I get this?

OK just to update this thread for future references. The court did not issue any official certificate. They simply stamped the original document as described in my earlier post, with "Deise Verfügung ist am <date> in Rechskraft erwachsen" which roughly translated means, "this decree is, as from <date>, offically in force". The only other thing I could do is get an extract of my status from the social register (Zivilstandamt), but aparently it's not necessary and this stamped document is accepted as proof. Sorted!!
