How To Access Delaware Divorce Records
In Delaware, divorce records are issued in the form of copies of the decree. A divorce decree outlines the court ruling of the rights and responsibilities of each party. The decree includes the case number and date of the dissolution of marriage as well as the terms of the divorce agreement. Decrees are typically several pages in length. The family courts in Delaware’s three counties issue divorce decrees and copies of these documents.

Divorce Records And Delaware Law
Under Delaware law, a small fee must be paid by the requestor of divorce records before any services can be provided. The very small, current fees of $4 per certified copy of a divorce decree and $1 for a non-certified copy are also non-refundable according to Delaware law. The fee applies to the search itself, but includes the copies of Delaware divorce records if they are found.

Your signature as the requestor of a Delaware divorce record is required. You must also give the reason for requesting the divorce record whether it is for your personal records, to use as official identification or to confirm when or if the dissolution of marriage occurred such as in a dating background check. Any reasonable use of divorce record information will be considered. For example, adult children doing genealogical research into their family history may want to search for the Delaware divorce records of their parents or other relatives.
