Georgia Divorce Records
Georgia is now a state where divorce records and other types of personal records can be obtained by anyone who requests the information and pays a small fee to the Vital Records office of the state of Georgia. You’ll need to give certain information about the couple such as full names, last address you have and numbers where they can be contacted.
Contact the Georgia State Office of Vital Records at:
2600 Skyland Drive, NE
Atlanta, GA 30319
Download the form first (available in PDF format), fill it out, and then mail it with a certified check or money order in the amount of $10 for one search and a confirmation of the divorce. You may only obtain a certified copy from the Clerk of the Superior Court in Georgia where the divorce took place. If you’re searching through several years for a record of the divorce, there is another $10 charge for every three years of the search. You must prepay and the fees aren’t refundable if the search fails to reveal particulars of the requested divorce.
The form you fill out must contain the full name of the bride and groom, date of divorce (or years you want to search), city and county where the divorce was granted and the number of copies you desire ($10 fee for each copy). Divorce records usually contain addresses and contact numbers of the couple, the reason the divorce decree was filed, alimony granted, custody of any children involved and more.
You can bypass going through the Vital Records department in the state of Georgia by using a fee-based, online search service that is quick and easy to use and will provide you with the same information in an easy-to-read and understand format. These search sites act as a middle man for you, providing information without having to bother with forms and dealing with bureaucracy. When you search using free divorce records sites, you risk receiving inaccurate or missing data that you may ultimately need.
Attorneys and employers use fee-based search sites on a monthly basis to gather information for a case or to check out prospective employees.
You might be interested in getting background information on a new person in yours or a loved-one’s life. Now that states such as Georgia have opened their vital records to the public, you can request that data and put your mind at ease. You may only need to search one time for specific information, and you’ll pay a one-time fee for that.
