There are many reasons why you may want to request North Carolina divorce records, including genealogical research. And, sometimes we or loved ones become involved with another person who might seem too good to be true. The relationship usually progresses quickly and the person either makes up a story about his or her background – or doesn't reveal the whole truth. You’re perfectly within your right to search for information about the person's past to protect yourself or someone you love from being scammed – or worse.
A search through North Carolina divorce records will reveal the person’s current marital status. You’ll want to have as much information as possible about the person so that you can offer that for the search, making it easier and faster to pull up the documents and get them to you. If the person in question has been divorced, had children or were required to pay spousal support or alimony, you should find out for sure in a divorce record. The person may have already told you that a divorce took place, but you'll be able to confirm or reveal the intricacies of the divorce. Even if everything the person told you is true and there is no damning evidence in the North Carolina divorce record, you'll have gained peace of mind and go forward with the relationship and won’t have regrets later on.
Records of any type may be difficult to search through, and the information you need might not always be presented in "layman's" language that you can understand.
