Conducting a Divorce Search

Dec 16, 2007
Divorce records are public records of divorces that have taken place in a particular county or a state. It is usually maintained by the vital records department or the health statistics department. There have also been attempts to make a central registry of these records with the national health statistics department.

Anybody can get an access to divorce records and obtain copies of the records that they are wanting by placing a request with the concerned civic authorities that are maintaining the records. But, if the person trying to obtain the records is not directly associated with the divorce, then they cannot obtain a certified copy of the divorce record.

A certified copy of the divorce record can be got only by the couple involved in the divorce and only this is a legal document for utilization in matters concerning the divorce.

Divorce Record Search

For searching any divorce record, you need to contact the particular vital records department that has jurisdiction to maintain the concerned record. You need to place a request for them to provide it and you need to follow certain protocols that are usually laid down while accessing any divorce record.

You may be asked up to pay up a fee and be required to wait up for a specific waiting period to obtain the record that you want. If you are looking at obtaining a certified copy or an uncertified copy then this is the route you need to take to obtain the divorce record.

But, if you are just trying to access the divorce record in order to help you get more information and you are not interested in any way in obtaining a certificate, either certified or uncertified, then you can take the route of using an online access to a website that carries information on divorce records which can be accessed by paying a fee. The fee paid could either be a pay-per-view or an unlimited access to the site by paying a subscription.

There are even other options on the internet that give these records without you have to pay a fee to access it. This may include a visit to the website of governmental agencies responsible for managing these records. There are even some private websites that offer you access to these records or provide links to go to the concerned government website to conduct your search.

Searching for the records online helps you save up on time that is required to visit the records department and obtaining the records that you want. So, if your purpose is purely research and not wanting a certificate of the concerned record, an online option is more useful and saves you a lot of time.
