The application form to request North Carolina death, marriage or divorce records is the same. The appropriate section must be filled out on this form, available from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Vital Records Unit. Divorce certificates from dissolution of marriages from 1958 to the present are available through the Vital Records Unit. An alternative way to access North Carolina divorce records, including those before 1958, is to go to the court in the county where the dissolution of marriage took place.
How To Access North Carolina Divorce Records
The fee for the search for a divorce record in North Carolina is $24. This cost includes a copy of the divorce certificate if the record is found. The fee is non-refundable if a record of the divorce is not found on file as the cost covers the search process. Additional copies of the same record ordered at the same time are $15 each.
