Divorce Records - How to obtain a copy in the United States
A divorce record or decree is a document that provides proof of the dissolution of a marriage. Access to divorce records differs by state; some states offer certified divorce decrees (which can be used for legal purposes) while others only offer only verification of a divorce.

Copies of divorce records and decrees are generally available at Vital Records offices at the state level, but often only at the city or county court where the final divorce decree was granted. Please note that some states are "open records" states which allow anyone to obtain divorce records, while others have more stringent access rights.

Below are general tips and hints for obtaining divorce records in the United States:
· Try to limit it to one request per letter. Multiple requests per letter may lead to confusion.
· Always provide a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) and payment
· Please provide the following information in your request for a divorce decree:
 
· Date of request
· Full name of husband and wife. Please include maiden name as well.
· Date and place of divorce (city, county, and state)
· Type of final decree
· Requestor's relationship to parties
· The purpose for which the record is needed
· Relationship to party
· Requestor's name & address
· Some states may require requestor's driver's license number and the state of issuance
· Requestor's signature
