Having a Brazilian Divorce recognized in Switzerland


Does anyone have an experience requesting divorce certificates from Brazil? Unfortunately the version I received from cartoria24horas is not the format that Switzerland needs in order for my divorce to be accepted here. They can only provide marriage certificates with a tiny clause stating that we are now divorced. I heard that the "correct" divorce certificate is not stored on any central system and that it needs to be obtained locally. But nobody can tell me how to do this, I wouldn't even know what government official in Brazil I would need to start with!

I have found a lawyer who can order this on my behalf but they want 2.5k! Surely there is a cheaper way to have my OLD divorce recognized?

Any advice appreciated
