    Thank you for your interest obtaining a copy of Minnesota court records. Since you need a copy of your divorce decree you will want to contact the relevant Minnesota courthouse clerk, where the divorce decree was filed, and inquire about obtaining a copy of this old divorce record. If they don’t have this record, since it’s an older Minnesota court record, you might need to contact the state archives. In any case, the Minnesota court clerk should be able to point you in the right direction.
