There are several ways to obtain a copy of a divorce record in Georgia, and each one takes very little time. Whether you request a Georgia divorce record online or in person, you?ll need to provide the following information:
– A Georgia Divorce Record request form filled out in its entirety and signed (this form is available on the Georgia Department of Public Health website)
– A copy of your photo identification
o Driver license
o State ID card
o Military identification form
o Consulate card
o Voter?s registration
o Debit card
o Employer ID card
o School ID card
o DMV ID card
o Department of Corrections ID card
– Payment in the form of a check, money order, or credit card payment
o $10 for the search fee and one certified copy of a divorce record
o $5 for each additional copy
o $10 for every three years you want searched for a specific divorce record
This is mailed to the address listed on the application, and the forms is processed immediately upon receipt and mailed to you as soon as the search is complete.
If you prefer to apply in person, you?ll need to visit the State Office of Vital Records at 2600 Skyland Dr. NE, Atlanta, GA 30319. The office is open every week day from 8 am to 4:30 pm except on federal and state holidays. You may also apply in person at any county records office. The information required to obtain an in-person copy of a divorce record is the same in-person as it is to apply through the mail.
Cash is never accepted for divorce records, even if they are requested in-person. Check, money order, debit cards, and credit cards are the only valid form of payment accepted. Anyone may request certified copies of Georgia divorce records. If you cannot find the record you need, a more advanced search might be necessary. It could also be the result of misinformation, the incorrect date, a misspelled name, or some other mistake. It helps to check in person if you cannot find the document you need, and perhaps an official record office can find what you need when you cannot.
