Delaware Divorce Records Search

Delaware divorce records are a little more complicated to find than they are in many other states. They’re stored in a variety of locations in Delaware, which means residents and those searching for Delaware divorce records must have specific information, as well as an idea of where to look for the specific records they need. Anyone can view a divorce record in Delaware. It’s public record and easily searched, but not everyone is able to request a certified copy. The only people legally permitted to do this are the people listed on a divorce record, those who are children or parents of a person on the divorce records, and those who are legal representatives of the people listed on the record.

If you’re in search of a more recent divorce record in Delaware, you’re going to want to search the online database with the Delaware County Probate Court in the county where the divorce occurred. This is a simple process, and it doesn’t require anything more than just the name of one person on the divorce certificate. It’s made easier by narrowing the search to the specific year in which the divorce took place, but this is not knowledge you must have to find the record you’re looking for. You must have one name and know the county where the divorce occurred.

If the divorce you’re looking for was an annulment, or the erasing of a marriage, it’s also available in the same manner. It costs the same as a divorce decree, and the same methods of payment are all accepted at every office. To ensure you receive same-day service, you’ll want to call the office and ask about any cut-off times. Some offices need this information no later than a certain time to have the time to pull the records and search for the information you require. If you bring your request too late, it might mean coming back the following day to pick up the record and pay for it when you do.

  1. My name is Dorothy Varma & I am seeking to obtain copies of my divorce papers, which were filed in the State of Delaware, but don’t know which city in Delaware. I do recall my final divorce decree was issued in 2000 if I’m not mistaken. There should be a divorce decree and another for pension disbursement; I am in need of copies of both. If someone could either email or telephone me as to the proper procedures for obtaining these copies & the fees involved, I would be extremely grateful. I live in Uniondale, NY & am unable to come in person, as I am a full-time employee & work a 35 hour work week. I just turned 65 and need these for Social Security purposes. Thank you so much for any information you can furnish me with; it is greatly appreciated.

      Delaware Divorce Property Settlements

      In Delaware divorce property settlements the property is typically settled between the divorcing parties and sign a Marital Settlement Agreement. If this agreement is not signed then the property distribution is ordered by the relevant Divorce Court.

  3. I was divorced in your state with publications. It was fraudulently proved that I was unreachable. Is this true when the plaintiff was on a child support order? I knew nothing of this divorce after he intentionally abandoned myself and his baby. Is this legal?

    1. Machele, unfortunately we cannot weigh in on legal matters such as you mentioned. A good place to start is to contact legal counsel to determine the legitimacy of this Delaware divorce.
