Nowadays divorce records are no longer confidential, which makes it legal to search for any persons records. Obtaining these records is an easy process as all you need is time, a computer and internet access as well as your debit or credit card.
There are many different sites that offer their services and one really has to shop around in order to find a reputable agency. In order to check if the company is reputable or not just read the reviews and customer comments. Most of these agencies ask you to sign up and charge a small fee. Then there are also free websites which allow you to search at your own leisure.
Another method of finding divorce records is to go to governmentregistry.org, then once you are on the website go to civil records and click on the tab marriage and divorce. An application form will come up and you need to fill this form in with all the relevant information required such as the first and last name of the person you are looking for as well as the state where the person got divorced.
Once the application form has been completed then just click search. The website will then display all relevant searches, and all you need do is choose the one you are looking for.

No matter what the reasons are for looking for a particular personís records, you will have to put in some effort. If you find that you are unable to locate the information you requested, then you need to carry on searching and just keep trying one state at a time. It is important to get as much information on the person as possible such as full names, date of birth, date of marriage, date of divorce, which county did this take place and as much info as you can get.
After trying all the different avenues with no success you may have to sign up with a tracing agency and pay the stipulated fee required. On the other hand you can visit the county court or department of justice personally and fill in the necessary application forms requesting the divorce records.
