Divorce Information

Divorce records are maintained by the court of common pleas in each county. Prior to 1851,
the records were found in either the county supreme court, the county chancery court, or
the county common pleas court. Appeals were made to the state legislature. After 1913 divorces
were handled by a division of the county court of common pleas known as the domestic relations
court. Please contact the court of common pleas of the county where the divorce was filed to
request records.
