About Divorce Records Search

What are Divorce Records?

Divorce records are legal documents relating to a couple's divorce. They include the divorce papers that the couple files in court, as well as any records created during the divorce procedure, and a divorce certificate. States also collect indexes of divorce filings to help people locate complete Divorce Records.

A divorce certificate is official proof that the marriage has ended. Divorce certificates are required for any legal proceedings after the divorce, including financial and property settlements, alimony filings, and orders for child custody. Divorce certificates and other documents related to the end of the marriage may be held by Vital Records Offices, Clerk's Offices, or courts.

Divorce Records contain a range of important information about the end of the marriage, such as the date of divorce, the location where the divorce was granted, information about the couple, and the reason for the divorce. The complete divorce case file may also include sworn statements from the couple, financial documentation, and any court orders related to the divorce. In most states, the complete records related to the divorce are only available at the court that granted the divorce, and they can only be requested by one of the former spouses or their legal representatives.

Divorce Records are required for property settlements after divorce, changing your name, filing for child and spousal support, and transferring vehicles or other joint property. Certified divorce certificates may also be required for immigration or to remarry. Foreign countries may ask for a divorce certificate when filing an immigration application or if you plan to marry abroad.

Many states maintain divorce indexes, which are databases of divorce decrees filed in the state. These records are not legal documents, but they are useful to determine the county where the divorce decree was filed. Divorce indexes typically include information such as the name and age of the couple, the date of marriage and divorce, the county where the divorce was filed, and the number of children. This information is often available online.
