Divorce Court Records
When a couple decides to divorce, the local divorce court will likely hear and decide their case. First, you must visit your state’s official website to determine the correct court which has jurisdiction over divorce cases in your area. Divorce court records begin with the initial paperwork filed by the petitioner, and end with the final divorce decree.
Contents in Divorce Court Records
Divorce court records contain every action and piece of paperwork in regard to a specific case. The party who files for divorce is known as the “petitioner,” and the other party is the “respondent.” The petitioner and respondent each enter their own evidence in the case, submit pleas and arguments to the court, and provide paperwork proving property ownership and financial status during the many hearings of a divorce. Character witnesses and older children who resulted from the marriage may also be called to testify when determining support and custody issues.
