Divorce Records

The case files document actions by a court (usually a circuit court) to dissolve a marriage. They usually include a complaint or petition, various subsequent filings and counterfilings, and a decree. Divorce case files can vary greatly in size depending on the complexity of the case--the presence of children, the amount of property, and the level of acrimony.
