A register of divorce is a comprehensive account on all that transpired in the proceeding. Because of this, it is used in a handful of purposes. Reinstating a woman’s maiden name, scrutinizing a background of a divorcee for the purpose of remarriage, employment, and even financial loan applications are just quite a few of how these documents can be beneficial.
Georgia has begun recording all divorces since June 1952. Registers of such events are archived in the Peach State’s primary repository for all vital records which is the Department of Public Health. It is through the Bureau of Vital Statistics that these documents along with other registers of vital events can be requested should they be needed for whatsoever licit intentions. However, Georgia does restrict access to divorce record only to individuals mentioned in the decree. Should anyone outside this restriction wish to request access to such crucial document must file a formal entreaty. Divorce information that are available at the State Office are only uncertified though. Hence, for more comprehensive information about the event, obtaining it locally in the county where the event transpired is a way better option.
