Statistics say that there are 6,646 divorces that transpire daily in the United States. Considerably, this number is quite high. Hence, many people feel that such appalling rate of marital breakdown, separation, annulment and divorce are the most emotionally difficult and serious social predicament for Americans today.
Because it is a legal matter, it is regarded with high importance; thus it is a vital record. As a vital document, it is a comprehensive account which contains all the proceedings in the event – the couple’s names in full, whereabouts of the event and the date when the divorce was filed and ratified. Also, more crucial information such as alimony, custody of a child and division of assets are also noted in such file. This is why divorce records in the state of Georgia are not deemed to be public archives. Only informational copies of the divorce are available for procurement unless needed for criminal background assessments.
