Utah Divorce Records

How to Find Divorce Records in Utah - The states regulate the divorces that are filed in their jurisdiction. Therefore, the divorce records are stored in that state at the local county office. A state repository or central location for all of the divorce records is often available.

Requests for certified copies of divorce records should be made at the Prothonotary Office of the county courthouse. Smaller courthouses may not have a Prothonotary Office. In that case, another county office will maintain the records. Although the state repository can locate copies of divorce records for you, they are not usually certified. In Utah, requests should be given to the County Clerk.

Divorce records are filed under the husband’s name. Your request should include the names of both spouses. Begin your search at the county that had jurisdiction over the divorce. If you don’t know this, then you can search the state one county at a time. Since each county will take between two to ten days to complete its search, this will be time consuming. Each county office requests a small fee for each search.

A more efficient way to search is to submit a request through the central or state office first. This will lead to the name of the county. Then the search can continue at the county level.

If you prefer, you can request a search for current and past spouses. This type of search will produce a list of all known spouses and their addresses at the time of their marriage. This list can produce the names of the counties or be used to locate them.

Information about each divorced couple is listed in their divorce records. This includes:
• husband’s full name
• the wife’s full name including her maiden name
• the name of the county where the divorce was filed
• the recorded filing date of the divorce
• the actual date of the finalized divorce
• a certificate number for identification purposes

Occasionally, some states list the number of the couple’s children under the age of eighteen at the time the divorce was filed.

Providing unnecessary information will not speed up the search, except in the case of genealogical searches, where little information is available and additional information can prove useful. Genealogical searches usually take longer than the typical two to ten days due to the fact that they are not as high up on the priority list and less useful information is usually provided with the request.

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 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 individual’s 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 driver’s license number.
11. Include a SASE, or self addressed stamped envelope with your request for a speedier delivery.
12. Include the date that you mail your request with your correspondence.
