Divorce Records in West Virginia

Divorce records are maintained by the states since they regulate the granting of divorces. In particular, the local County West Virginia, Divorce Records courthouse where the divorce was filed and finalized maintains the records.

Divorce records are available for a small fee ( varies across counties and states). In West Virginia, contact the following number to acquire information on fees for certified copies of records. The requests must be written and should include specific information about the requestor as well as the individual for whom the records are wanted. In West Virginia, the request should be brought to the attention of the Clerk of the Circuit Court.

You will be required to provide the reason for your request. Certain types of requests are filled more quickly, such as those that are made to ensure that the individual has been divorced and so is free to marry. Other requests, such as those that are for genealogical reasons may take a bit longer to process since no urgency exists. Usually, a search will take between two to ten days.

Divorce records are popular choices for genealogical searches since they often include the number of children under the age of eighteen at the time of the divorce. Additionally, the address of the couple at the time of the divorce is included. Other basic information that can be found on divorce records include: the husbandís full name (the records are filed under the husbandís name), the wifeís full name (with maiden name), the County West Virginia, Divorce Records name where the divorce took place, the filing date of the divorce, the date of the finalized divorce, and the certificate number.

If you are unsure of the County West Virginia, Divorce Records name for a set of divorce records, you can conduct a search on all spouses of the individual. This results in a detailed report that lists all spouses and their addresses at the time of the divorce.

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 West Virginia, Divorce Records 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 individualís 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 driverís license number.
