Send as much information as you can on the requested divorce and enclose a fee of $15 for a certified copy or $7 for an uncertified, plain copy. Also, include a legal size, stamped, self-addressed envelope for the copy of the record. You’ll need to include an application for the divorce decree copy and produce information about yourself and the reason why you want a copy of the decree. Another way to obtain a professional copy of the divorce decree is to make use of an online search service and the huge databases of information they use to search records for legal use, genealogical searches and much more. These services cut through the red tape and deliver your report in a short amount of time (usually minutes) and it will be presented in a concise format that you can easily read and decipher. For a small fee, you won’t have to disclose your identity and can be assured that the information you receive is the exact one you requested. If the service doesn’t find the Maine divorce record you asked for, they will return your fee.
Professionals such as lawyers and genealogical and historical researchers use these online, fee-based services on a regular basis to provide them with crucial information they may need on a daily or timely basis. Monthly memberships are usually available if you think you’ll be using the service frequently – if not, you can pay a one-time fee and use the service only once. Professional services such as these can find a record based on a sketchy amount of information, and you can be assured that your identity won’t be revealed.
