Georgia Divorce Records Search

The Georgia Department of Public Health makes it easy for anyone to search for or order Georgia divorce records upon request. If you simply need to view a divorce record, the best course of action is to visit the county website in which the divorce was finalized in Georgia and search the public records database. This allows you to search by first and last name of either party involved in the divorce to view a copy of the record. This cannot be used for official reasons, such as submitting for a name change request or new marriage license, but it can be viewed. If you need an official copy of the record, you?ll need to order one from the Georgia Department of Public Health.

    My father’s ex wife moved from Miami to Georgia and filed for a default judgement of divorce in Georgia. How can we find out in which county the divorce was filed? All we need is the date the divorce was granted but it’s been impossible obtaining that information. We’ve tried searching for her but no one knows her whereabouts.

  7. says:

    We can certainly assist you with a Georgia divorce record however to obtain an official Georgia divorce decree copy you will need to contact the Georgia court that processed your divorce decree. Since you are only looking for the date of the divorce decree you can contact the Georgia county courthouse clerk and inquire about your divorce decree date.
