Divorce Records And Connecticut Law
Under Connecticut law, you must supply the docket or case number of the divorce record you’re seeking. The Superior Court mainly issues copies of Connecticut divorce records in the form of decrees. These are called “Judgement Files” as they include the divorce agreement terms that outline the rights and responsibilities of each party. A certified copy of a Connecticut divorce decree may be used for legal purposes such as proof of the dissolution of marriage for immigration or remarriage or as identification for benefit applications.

When requesting Connecticut divorce records, be sure that both names on the documents are spelled correctly to ensure accuracy. The small fee required by Connecticut law includes the decree copy if the divorce records are found, but the charge is non-refundable if a record can’t be located as the amount covers the search as well.
