How to Source Divorce Records in Ohio - Divorce Records in Ohio

Divorces are regulated by the state and therefore, the state is responsible for the record keeping. Therefore, searches for divorce records should begin at the local County Divorce Records courthouse. Specifically, the request for a copy of a divorce record should be made at the courthouse in the County Divorce Records where the divorce was filed and finalized.

In some cases, such as those dealing with a genealogical search, the County Divorce Records might not be known. In this case, the individual would need to conduct a County Divorce Records by County Divorce Records search. This can become quite an extensive and time consuming search, especially in those states where numerous counties exist.

To circumvent this, you can conduct a past and current spouse search on the individual for whom you area searching for divorce records. Typically, a search for spouses will result in an address for each listed spouse. This may or may not include the County Divorce Records. However, it is simple to locate the County Divorce Records once you have the town or city.

Some states may have a state repository for official documents as well. A copy of a divorce record may be obtained form state repositories, however, it will not be a certified copy. This is a good place to begin a search when you do not know in which County Divorce Records you should be searching.

Basic information about the divorced couple is included on divorce records. Typically, the husbandís full name, the wifeís full name with the maiden name, the County Divorce Records where the divorce took place, the recorded or filing date of the divorce, the actual date of the finalized divorce, and a certificate number. Most of this information is requested when you begin your search.

Searches that include the greatest quantity of information will be the quickest and most successful searches. Since the majority of divorce records are filed by the husbandís name, this can turn out to be the most important piece of information. Some states also include the number of children under the age of eighteen at the time of the divorce.

The most successful search for divorce records can be achieved by completing the following steps:

1. Print or type each name and address clearly to avoid confusion. This includes the full name of both the husband and the wife. The maiden name should be included for the wife.
2. Keep your request brief and to the point.
3. Limit your request to one document.
4. Include the full names of the individuals, including nicknames and alternate spellings that may have been used.
5. Include the full address of the individual at the time of the divorce, including street, city or town, and state. If you know the County Divorce Records in which the divorce took place, include that as well.
6. Include the date that the divorce was finalized. If you do not have this piece of information available, include a time frame for the search. Generally, it is best to specify a short span of years for an unknown year search. You can always expand the number of years that you search, and a shorter span will lead to a shorter search. You can expect to pay an additional fee for searches such as this that require more effort.
7. Include contact information where you can be reached in the event that more information is required. Include a daytime, as well as an evening telephone number. You may also include a fax number or an e-mail address.
8. You should include your relationship to the individualís listed in your search request.
9. You should include the purpose of your request.
10. Print your name clearly and sign your request. Some states may also require additional identifying information on you as well, including a driverís license number.
11. Include a SASE, or self addressed stamped envelope with your request for a speedier delivery.
12. Include the date that you mail your request with your correspondence.
