Divorce Records in Wyoming

Each state regulates the granting of divorces for petitions filed in their jurisdiction. The divorce records are maintained in that particular state where the divorce was filed and finalized. Local county courthouses are responsible for the divorce records for its county. Some counties will keep the records in their Prothonotary Office, while others may use a different office. In Wyoming, you can contact the Clerk of District Court at the local county courthouse for divorce records.

Requests for certified copies of divorce records should be made at the local county courthouse if you know the name of the county. If you don’t know the name, then you can begin your search at the state repository if one exists. A state repository stores the records for the entire state. A search for the records one county at a time will also produce the records, but the search will take longer.

If you are searching for all divorce records for a particular individual, then a search for all spouses, current and past, might be the best procedure to take. This type of search will result in a list of all of the spouses along with their addresses at the time of the divorce. Even if the county is not listed on the report, it can be discovered using the address itself.

Divorce records will include the following information:
• the husband’s full name
• the wife’s full name including her maiden name
• the name of the county where the divorce took place
• the recorded filing date of the divorce
• the actual date of the finalized divorce
• a certificate number for identification purposes

Several states also include the number of the couple’s children under the age of eighteen at the time of the divorce.

When providing information, do not include anything that isn’t requested. Additional information will not aid in the search, except in the case of genealogical searches. Genealogical searches can benefit from extra information, especially when the available information is sketchy in details.

Typical searches will take between two and ten days in most cases. Genealogical searches usually take longer. A small fee is required to retrieve the information and for the copy of the divorce record. The fee varies across counties and states, but is reasonable.

Follow the guidelines here to produce a more efficient search.

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 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 telephone number, 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 individual’s 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 driver’s license number and/or picture.
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.
