Connecticut divorce records can be searched online and is now part of the Public Information Act that allows the public to search through vital records they might need for genealogy, legal and other reasons. Depending on how much information you need from the divorce record, a public search might be enough. However, if you need detailed information, you may want to consider a fee-based, online search service that use more powerful search engines and have more extensive databases than a public search. You can request a copy of the divorce decree by contacting the Connecticut superior court where the divorce was eventually granted. If you don’t know the town or city where the divorce took place, you can request that information from the Vital Records office in Harford, Connecticut.

Connecticut embraces 169 towns and each one is accountable for keeping their own divorce records, so it might take longer or be a little more complicated to first find the town in which the divorce was granted. Even if you know the Connecticut town of the divorce, prepare to wait for at least six weeks to receive a copy through the mail. A faster method would be to request only a certified copy of the divorce certificate as long as you don’t need a “state” certified document. If you want to perform a state search, you must also submit an application and proper payment for the divorce records. The payments vary from town to town, but you can request an application from any of the towns’ Vital Records departments.
Those who seek copies of vital records want the information to be up-to-date and accurate. You may be seeking a copy of a Connecticut divorce record because you’re attempting to research your family history, need a copy for a legal reason such as immigration, or simply want to find out about the background of a person in your life. Whatever your reason, you may want to enlist the help of a fee-based, online search service. You won’t have to submit an application – only enter some vital information necessary to begin the search – such as the divorced couple’s names. You won’t need to reveal your identification and you’ll receive a report usually within moments.
