What is a Divorce Records Request Letter?
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.
When to use a Divorce Records Request Letter:
