Marriage and Divorce Records

The marriage record should be the civil marriage record rather than the church record or souvenir certificate. This can be obtained usually from the clerk of the county in which the marriage license was obtained. Extraneous material, such as heavy folders, boxes, or booklets, should not be sent.

The divorce decree is the document which contains the date and place of the final judgment of divorce, as well as information concerning the number of children, their custody, and support requirements. Divorce decrees can be obtained usually from the county in which the divorce is granted.

All pages of the decree must be submitted.
