Divorce Records Request Letter Basics

If you need to prove you're divorced, but you no longer have the official records, you can send a Divorce Records Request Letter. If you're reclaiming your maiden name on your social security card, credit cards, or passport, a Divorce Records Request Letter helps you get the records to prove your divorce.

Use the Divorce Records Request Letter document if:

  • You need to prove a divorce.
  • You need to request a copy of a dissolution or annulment certificate.

A Divorce Records Request Letter may be necessary even if your divorce was relatively straightforward. If you want to change your name post-divorce, you need proof. Bank accounts, school transcripts, and military IDs are just a few examples. You might need proof of a divorce when adopting a child or getting re-married. Copies of divorce records are typically held in the city, county, or other local office where the event occurred; to obtain the appropriate address, refer to a telephone book, or refer to the government web site for the locale where the event occurred. You would then use a Divorce Records Request Letter to help get a copy of the divorce decree.
