Divorce Records And Indiana Law

As Indiana is an “open records” state in which anyone may request a divorce record, the information on a dissolution of marriage may be used in background checking. It’s also a good idea, in addition to a dating background check to confirm divorce details, to check your own records for accuracy. If you can access another person’s Indiana divorce records, others can also view yours, so ensuring that your own information is accurate is crucial.
