, Minnesota (PressExposure) May 26, 2008 -- Divorces have become a common phenomenon today, with every second marriage breaking up within the first year. It was not like this earlier. Divorce was condoned and not looked at favorable, in fact in some states, it was considered illegal.
With divorces becoming more common and frequent, records of divorces have begun being stored just as other birth and marriage records.
The civil authorities maintained these divorce records. In the United States, the individual states are responsible. The county where the divorce is granted keeps the records in the United States.
These records contain all the information about the spouseâs name, date of marriage, place of marriage, ages of both the husband and wife, names of the children, birth dates of the children, property owned, and date of divorce and also the reason for the divorce. Some records may also have their credit card numbers and tax returns as well as the alimony paid (if it is paid.)
These records are found online and there are several ways of finding the divorce records.
You can find them by doing a search with the location or category and may even use a public record locator. They can also be searched with the names and address of the current spouse as well as ex-spouse. It is easier to find the information if you provide as much information as possible.
Divorce records are not considered confidential in the United States and can be accessed easily by paying a fee. The responsibility of issuing certified copies lies with the State Center for Health Statistics. All the divorce related state records are stored with the National Center for Health Statistics.
The divorce certificates can also be ordered using a credit card and the timeframe within which you get these records varies from state to state.
