Certified Copy of Mississippi Divorce Records

To obtain a legal copy of a divorce record, you’ll need to be someone legally able to do. You’ll visit the Mississippi Chancery Clerk’s office in the county where the divorce occurred. To obtain a copy, you’ll need specific information.

– Name
– Address
– Photo identification
– Names of both parties on the divorce certificate
– Maiden names where applicable
– Date of divorce

Once you provide this information, you’ll be able to obtain a copy for your records. These copies are usually used to obtain a new marriage certificate, for child support purposes, and to apply for any loans or mortgages. It’s also useful to have when you enroll your children in specific sports or in a new school. There is a fee for this record, but it might not be as high as $15 if you don’t need the clerk to search for it in a 5-year increment.

It’s recommended you call and ask what time you must have this information to the Mississippi clerk to receive the record the same day you take it in. Otherwise, many people who visit later in the day are required to come back the following business day if the record takes too long to search for.
