Missouri Divorce Records
Searching through divorce records online is easy, if you know what you're doing. It can be very frustrating if you've never searched through vital records online. Some people just give up because maneuvering through vast amounts of data can be a daunting task. You might also choose to turn over the task to the state. Missouri divorce records have been archived since the early 1700s, and unless you know the exact date it may take awhile to get the results.
If you prefer to let the vital records department of the state of Missouri find the divorce records you need, you'll need to download an application and send to:
Missouri Department of Health
Bureau of Vital Records
P.O. Box 570
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0570
If you're in Missouri, you can also pick up an application at a local health facility. If you want a certified copy of the divorce decree, you'll need to pay a small fee and contact the clerk in the Missouri county where the divorce was obtained. Fees usually range from $10 to $15 per copy and if you don’t have the exact date of the divorce, the department can search back to five years. You should allow two to four weeks for delivery of the divorce record through the mail. The application you'll need to fill out requests the full name of the bride and groom, date of their marriage (or divorce), the place where the marriage or divorce took place, your relationship to the bride or groom and why you're requesting the information.
Another way to take all the work out of searching through Missouri divorce records is to use an online, fee-based service. Searching through vital records on your own can be frustrating and time-consuming. An online service uses various search engines and databases to search the public divorce records and gather the useful information that you can use for your research – for legal or personal reasons. All information, including your name and reason for your search will remain confidential and no one will know that you received a copy of the record.

It cuts out time and effort and they know that the information is accurate. If a search done by one of these professional agencies doesn’t reveal a record, there is no fee charged to you.
Whether you're looking through Missouri divorce records for historical facts, genealogy purposes or simply to find out more about a certain person(s) in your sphere, these online, fee-based services can perform the search for you. The information comes to your computer, privately and in an easy to read format that will make it easy for you to understand and gather just the data you need for your research.
