– The name of at least once person listed on the divorce record

Once you have this information, you?ll visit the local Indiana clerk of court website in the county where the divorce took place.

Obtaining A Certified Copy of Indiana Divorce Records

Anyone in Indiana can obtain a copy of a divorce record, but only the person listed on the record, the children of the persons listed, or the parents of the persons listed on the Indiana divorce records in question may obtain a certified copy. The court where the divorce was finalized allows you to walk into the office and request a copy. You?ll need to provide the date of the divorce, the names of both parties, and the maiden name of the former wife.

There is a fee, and it varies by location. You?ll want to call first and obtain a quote so you know how much to bring for the number of copies you need, and you?ll want to be sure they accept specific forms of payment. Many offices have a cut-off time for requesting copies for same-day service, so that?s information you?ll want to gather as well.

If you cannot visit in person, call the office and request a copy over the phone. Many offices can direct you to a website to order a copy online, and some will take your application through the mail if you send in a written request. Since the laws vary in each county, taking the time to call is the best way to handle the situation quickly and with ease.
