• Can divorce settlement papers be downloaded online?

Divorce judgement was given in the late 1990s.
We have the settlement number but do not have the judgment papers.
Do we need to approach the same lawyer who was part of the proceedings or can the judgement document be accessed on an online repository?

2) it is not necessary that you approach the same lawyer 

3)you can visit the court website to find out whether said judgment is available online or not

Hi
if you know the court in which divorce was granted, you can file for a copy of a suit extract register through a lawyer and get  the copy of the decree and judgment. 
any lawyer will suffice.
orders pertaining to 1990 will not be available online.

You need a certified copy of the judgment and not a web copy. So obtain the certified copy through your lawyer or any local lawyer.

You may not find the judgment of the year 1990 online.  You may apply for a certified copy of the same as party in person too.  You do not have to compulsorily get the copies through advocate only.
You may visit the court office, file a copy application with the details and get them.
