Obtaining a divorce court record is simple process if you have the necessary information to locate the records.

The search of divorce court records is usually free. However, if you are requesting official transcripts there are fees involved depending upon your location. There are also additional copy fees usually between $1 and $3 per page. These fees are payable by money order and are non-refundable.

If you are requesting information from another country, this information will need to be verified.

You must include the following when ordering a transcript:
• The case name (or caption)
• The case number
• Name of the Judge (If available)
• In what state/county/city the case was heard
• The date of the case
• Your name, address and telephone number
• Brief description of the proceeding (or section of the proceeding) you are ordering (for example, the testimony of a specific witness, the court’s order, etc.)

Always keep handy a copy of your ID with a photograph. It is also necessary for you to have a signature on your ID. If you don’t, you should have a copy of your signature notarized to show. Keep in mind court reporter’s and monitor’s tapes are destroyed after seven years.

All certificates are available:
By mail – by sending the fee and necessary information to:
In Person – By going to the Official Court Reporter’s office.
Questions – Contact the local court records office.
