Free Divorce Records Search

It may be that you have met someone new; someone you want to share your new life with. Or you may need to bring back the painful memories and obtain your Records of Divorce because you need to update your family files. If you live in the United States, getting a copy of your public records won?t be a problem as there are several things that you can choose to do.

Your first step is to work on your residency. Public records are only available to legal residents of the county or state where the records are kept. Each state has a specific ruling in terms of the number of months or years of stay in that county or state before one is given the go-signal to file the request.

Step number two is to get in touch with or visit the state?s (where the divorce took place) Vital Statistics Office. There are some requirements that you need to be careful about, though. First off, one application filed should be for one request only. Multiple requests are not allowed. Also, you need to be ready with your self-addressed stamped envelope, which is one of the major requirements of the state. Be ready, too, to provide all the details that will be asked from you. Aside from your name, you should also provide the complete name of your former husband/wife. In addition, you should provide all the alternate spellings of both your names. You should also indicate when the divorce was granted.

If it happens that you are not the person on the record, you should clearly and truthfully indicate your relationship to the couple who owns the divorce record. Likewise, you should specify the final decree that was handed down; and, in some states, you will have to give them your driver?s license details. As it is a state agency, there is a fee for every request you make, although this varies from state-to-state and from county-to-county. In addition, since state or government offices are always up-to-the-neck with requests, you should be willing to wait for several days (or even weeks!) before your request is processed. This is true for all requests of Records of Divorce and other public records.

The good news is that, thanks to the Internet and modern technology, there are now other options for getting copies of public records. Professional online record providers work independently and are dedicated to helping individuals from all walks of life to find the public files they need. A lot of these online providers even have more comprehensive databases compared to state or government offices. This means that you will have better chances of finding the record ? or records ? you need. What you will love most about these online record providers, though, is all the efficiency and convenience they offer. You do not need to get out of the house and deal with different government offices. You save a lot of time and effort as everything is done online. Also, you will not have to wait for days or weeks because as soon as your request is filed, it will be processed and the results will be out immediately after.
